Nabina came to the United States in 2009 as a refugee from Nepal, where she had been a medical student and social activist doing volunteer work in hospitals and orphanages. Nabina initially put herself through community college and completed her first Associate’s degree in Oklahoma, then she moved to New York, where she enrolled in BCNA’s IDA program to help pay for further schooling. With these funds, she was able to purchase a computer and enroll in nursing classes at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC). When she graduates, she will have achieved her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse.
