REQUEST THIS SPEAKER

Bhuwan Pyakurel’s journey as a refugee from Bhutan brought him to the United States in 2009 at age 30. He currently works with Primary One Health as an interpretive Service Coordinator, supporting immigrants and refugees with language in the health care setting. Bhuwan passionately works with local communities on issues surrounding education. Currently residing in Columbus, Ohio, Bhuwan’s community is predominantly low income refugees and immigrants from Somalia and Bhutan. His efforts include organizing meetings and inviting local speakers from the school district to explain the American education system to community parents.  Bhuwan desires to educate more members from his community about advocacy and how they can fight for their cause.
