“As A facilitator we should lead with grateful heart and Compassionate being”

Dr. Ripal is a name that is synonymous with excellence, passion, and dedication in the field of computer science and education. With a background in computer science and information technology, Dr. Ripal has made a name for herself as a respected educator, researcher, and leader in her field.

As a young girl, Dr. Ripal had always been interested in science, and had even dreamed of becoming a doctor. But it was her father’s decision for her to pursue computer science that ultimately led her to discover her passion for the subject. During her 10th grade, she designed a prototype of a washing machine using embedded systems, which sparked her interest in hardware and computer science.

Dr. Ripal completed her bachelors in Computer Science and Information Technology, and went on to pursue her masters in the same field, where she received a gold medal. During her masters, she also came up with own startup. In 2015, she joined a college as an Assistant Professor and also worked as a Database Administrator in the University Library.

Dr. Ripal’s passion for teaching and her dedication to her students is truly remarkable. Many of her colleagues and students have asked her why she chose teaching as her career, as she is a full-stack developer and Database Administrator. But for her, teaching is her passion. She loves sharing new things with others, especially with students, and sees herself as a facilitator rather than a teacher or professor. She is inspired by her students and believes that teaching is the only profession that rewards the teacher with “value rewards” such as respect, love, trust, and contribution from students.

Dr. Ripal’s work as a facilitator and educator extends beyond the classroom, as she is always looking for new ways to contribute to the field of ICT and enhance her knowledge. She sees herself as a tech-savvy individual and her hobby is to search for the latest technology and trends. In her free time, she deepens her understanding of concepts or develops small real-time problem-solving modules, which helps her become more confident in that technology or topic.

Dr. Ripal’s leadership skills are also worth mentioning, as she is always open to new responsibilities and takes on new roles with the benefit of her students in mind. She is a leader who leads with a grateful heart and a compassionate being, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help her students succeed.

Dr. Ripal has received many recognitions and awards for her work, such as the academic excellence award by International organization of research scholar and the global goodwill Ambassador Award by Richarddipillia.

As she looks towards the future, Dr. Ripal is excited to take on more managerial roles and responsibilities in the next few years, potentially even taking the lead on funded projects and serving as a committee head or coordinator. She also wants to collaborate with the government on projects that address real-time societal problems. Overall, Dr. Ripal is a shining example of what it means to lead with a grateful heart and a compassionate being, and is an inspiration to us all.
