I am a 20 year old girl from two different worlds. My mother was born and raised in Switzerland and my father came from the hills of Darjeeling. I grew up in the chaotic city, Kathmandu with all its dust, noise and glorious charm. I always felt that I was different. In all the different schools I went to I never really fit in anywhere. I was always an outsider amongst my peers. We never had the same interests nor the same ideas about the future. I was always an avid reader, I loved helping people and getting to know what makes them happy and how I could help. Once I joined GATE college, it was as if someone opened a new book for me to devour. I found others who were as interested in others as I was. I found a career where I could meet new and interesting people and work with them. This college opened doors and gave me an opportunity to do something of value to me. It allowed me to use the skills I already possessed and refine them into gifts that would put the world in my hands. GATE made me grow as a person and made me into who I am today.
I, Mohammad Tariq Sherzad from Kabul Afghanistan, studying at the GATE. I had options for three different countries (Thailand, India and Nepal), and we came to Nepal as we found it interesting in terms of culture and rich in natural sources. Because of war and fear, we could not study in Kabul, Afghanistan therefore; we chose to study in the Hospitality Industry, as there is no hospitality industry in Kabul, Afghanistan like GATE college without any fear of terrorist attacks. We all were in thirst for peace. We found a peaceful and friendly environment in Nepal. GATE College has helped utilize the best of our time and know that we can achieve our objectives of our goals from GATE College. In order to promote the Hospitality industry in Afghanistan, this is a great platform to learn. We experienced cultural differences in Nepal, we saw natural resources that were amazing and people are quite good with us, everyone is very friendly.
I am glad that I made the decision 4 years back to join this esteemed educational institute that provided a prestigious course here in our country itself. And I can proudly say that I don’t regret the decision I made. Not only quality education, GATE was an incubating platform to develop my entrepreneur skills. There is so much more you achieve when studying through GATE than just a certificate.

GATE’s presence will always be there with you like a shadow, guiding in every step that you take. My personal experience as GATEIAN has been joyous, memorable and beneficial.

Hospitality is simply an opportunity to show love and care. I started my hospitality career in 2013 from GATE College. To be a successful hotelier was my aim and by joining GATE my dream came true. GATE taught me what the hotel industry is, what hospitality is? Khem Sir has been my role model, without his motivation and support my dream would not have succeeded. Today I am running my own hotel, MOJO Boutique Hotel, as a Managing Director. What we see can be captured in our hand. It is a tough road, yes, it is tough but not impossible, be a rare human who lives his life with his purpose.
