Prashansha KC

Originally born in Rukum, Prashansha KC spent her childhood playing in the meadow and river of Machhimi Village. Her life took a turn when her 15 years old friend had a miscarriage due to early pregnancy cause by Child marriage. Now an activist, Youtuber, and Filmmaker, KC started her journey from Rukum.  

Being born in Rukum, the only language she was familiar with and well versed in was Rukumeli. When she moved to Kathmandu for better opportunities and education services, her family had to forsake everything dear to them. They had to forsake their family, their property, their friends, and all. Thus, it wasn’t easy for Miss KC to adapt to the new ubiquitous society. To her, it felt as if she had taken a huge leap out of the well that she had been
living in.

As a kid, she was really joyous and playful. It so happened that when
she moved from Rukum to Kathmandu, she had to face lingual communication problems. She didn’t understand English at all. She flunked in most of her subjects since they were all taught in English.

She was so disheartened by this initially, but, then later, she made up
her mind to get better at English. She would watch YouTube videos,
movies with no subtitles, tv series, documentaries, and all. And, eventually,
she started getting better at English. However, she couldn’t talk in
English fluently.

With lots of trials and errors, she definitely learned to speak English,
too. But, she couldn’t grasp the accent. Because she watched most of the
videos on YouTube – she developed a mixture of different accents spoken around the world – American, British, African-American, European.
Due to this very reason, her friends would tease her up, mock her, and
make fun of her accent. They labeled her accent as an “Exaggerated-Fake
Accent”. Like any other 12-year-old kid, she used to get disheartened by
this. But, she didn’t give up. She improved her accent and started
reading books, too. She developed a good command of her English.

She started participating in competitions – poetry, drama, story-writing, and many more alike. She won many poetry competitions during her school days. When she joined UniGlobe College, Kathmandu, she had participated and won in a national level poetry writing competition.

She developed up a taste for making YouTube videos in grade 8. She would
make video blogs – VLOGS and upload it on her YouTube Channel.
Initially, she didn’t have many audiences but, she had somehow managed
to get 500 subscribers, which, at her age, was a really cool thing.

One day, she decided to make a vlog about ‘Laphing’.She would go to stall
from stall and have ‘Laping’ and make comments on each ‘Laphing’
sellers about the taste. And concluded the video with the best ‘Laphing’
in town. This video garnered lots of attention. I mean, who wouldn’t
wanna try out the best ‘Laphing’ in the town ? This incident motivated
her a lot more. And this is how her career as a YouTuber began.

Her YouTube channel has a total of 45 videos with astounding 21.1K
subscribers which have been successful to garner almost about 2million
total views. The very first video that she’d uploaded on her YouTube
channel was named “Project To Eradicate Kidnap Marriage and Child
, a documentary, which talks about the mission of eradicating
the Kidnap Marriage and Child Marriage, mainly prevalent and deep-rooted in Rukum.

Apart from making videos related to food-eating-challenges and food
reviews, she also films and uploads documentaries and stories related to our
social mishaps. She also has a youtube video uploaded which tells about
how anyone could get started with their own YouTube channel.
Her videos are fun and amusing to watch. Moreover, the documentaries
she’s uploaded are so informative and inspirational, too. The videos are
so cinematic and catchy to the eyes. One would never get tired of
watching her videos.

She’s also a social activist. She has been actively participating and serving in social works and Women-Empowering activities since long ago.

Personally, she’s such a sweet and adorable person. She’s an inspiration
for all the Nepalese, mostly girls. The contributions she’s made in the
field of social works and women empowerment are applaudable. She is
kind, amiable, humble, and a very talented person.
