Having come from a lower middle-class family, Acharya had completed his secondary school from a community school in Pokhara. He then joined +2 science for higher education, which he has recently passed.

He has an avid interest in building drones and other devices. “When I was in grade 8, I had built my first portable fan. I attended science exhibition organized by Indra Rajya Laxmi Secondary School representing the fan. Many people had given me amazing and encouraging feedbacks,” Acharya shared to Glocal Khabar.

He has then built drones, smart cars and much more. “I, along with my friends from college, had made a SMART HOUSE WITH DRONE, and participated in the Science Exhibition programme-2073 held at Prithvi Narayan Campus on 3rd and 4th of Poush organized by Awareness Group of Technical Science (AGTS). People were amazed seeing our products,” Acharya shared with enthusiasm.

He has tried to help the students and motivated in the area of Technology and Electronics. “But, I don’t want to stop here. I hope, I have got enough inspiration within me to continue this work in the future. I want to become a teenage changemaker from Nepal,” he expresses.

“Every time when I fail, I do more hard work and I promise to work harder till I finish the work. I always try to get self-motivated for hard work. Whenever, I get deviated from my work, I always ask myself a question, ‘Are your excuses more important than your dreams?’,” he shares his feelings.

“I have a dream to serve my country by establishing myself as a Mechanical Engineer in the future, and show my talent. I want to serve my country and make it perform better. There are many children in Nepal who have talents and I want to help and inspire them. I want to make my country renowned,” he shares with determination.
