Highly passionate about music and photography, Nibesh Baral is a Co-founder of Dare To Revolution (DTR) Foundation. DTR Foundation is a group of self-driven teens who are working on empowering the youths of the nation by helping them to build a network and work together to bring a revolutionary change. He passed his SEE from Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya, Pokhara and is currently pursuing his A-Levels from Novel Academy.
He also has his own music band named ‘The Gurkhas’ and his very own Music Studio named ‘ Nibesh Nick Studio’ that has been providing platform for anyone interested in music.
Starting of his journey
Recalling the starting point of his journey, Nibesh said,” When I was in grade 8, I did my first photography using the camera of my school. Slowly, my interest grew towards videography and music. The CEO of DTR Foundation, Binit Kumar Chhantyal inspired me to do some revolutionary works with my passion. So I started joining different programmes, seminars and events. Infact, I also supported Mr. Binit in making the youtube channel of Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya, Pokhara along with my teacher Purna Thapa Magar. I remember the incident when one of my friend Aseem Pandey thanked me for helping him with my work. This incident inspired me and gave me the reason to share my talent with as many people as I can”. Since then, this young boy started to invest his full dedication and focus to achieve his goal.
Making a difference
With the help of DTR Foundation, Nibesh has been bringing all public speaking, leadership and entrepreneurship in a single platform and has made it accessible to all the youth who are willing to do best for the country. He said, “There are 11 members in our core team where each member are of different field like entrepreneurship, leadership, graphics, software engineering, etc. Since ‘Skill breeds skills’, each member leads other youth having respective interests. This is how we are enhancing the future workforce for Nepal”.
A step towards teen hero
Nibesh is feeling really privileged and said, “I am really excited to be one of the Glocal’s 20 under 20 because I believe this recognition will help me to expand my works covering larger youths in future. I have assured myself that within five years, I will stand up with a finer music studio under the brand name of DTR Foundation and will provide huge platform to enhance the music industry of Nepal. We shall be providing the opportunities to groom and networks to collaborate. I have always been inspired by the saying of George Bernard Shaw; Life is not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself. So, as a social entrepreneur, I am persistently working for the change and revolution I wish to introduce.”
A pinch of unity, willingness to share, enthusiasm to learn and dedication to cover a long run is what that brings revolution in a society. Nibesh’s role on creating platform like DTR is really appreciable since he has been able to create impact on the youths, by the youth itself. His positive attitude and long run vision are the catalyst for many people’s willingness to bring a better change together.
Nibesh Baral was selected among the 20 brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers below the age of 20 in Nepal, for the year 2018. This annual list is the ultimate honor roll of young game changers reshaping Nepal for the better. The platform seeks to encourage the youths to share their initiation, creativity, and enthusiasm which will then motivate them and more of the other youths in the nation to develop an entrepreneurial thinking.
