Deepak Ojha Memorial Scholarship

Hello everyone, 

Today is April 28, and it is my dad's birthday.  I have decided to do a fundraiser as part of his memorial. It has already been two years but I want him to be in everyone's heart forever.

The funds collected will be a scholarship. My goal is to raise $1000 and create a scholarship for an international student in Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD).  From the beginning my dad has always been my biggest inspiration. He is the one who introduced me to art and that is why I chose ACAD. He always supported his community. Back when we were in Nepal 16 years ago, I still remember him bringing bricks to put on top of the sidewalk so people would have easier time walking due to lot of rain and mud. He stole everyone's heart by doing little things like that and I want to continue what he has always done.

Little about my dad:

He was born in April 28 in Nepal. He studied in Russia and lived there for 15 years.  He did his PhD in Agriculture with a focus in cotton! He loved poetry and wrote a lot of amazing funny, realistic to emotional ones. 

So what happened?...

It's really sad but to make it simple he had a pre-stage cancer and the surgery was not successful. So what left to do now  is continue his legacy. 

Please support us with this fundraiser and lets make this happen :) . Please help us share this as well!

Thank you.

His daughter,
Deepa Ojha
