My name is Abishek Mahat and I am 15 years old. I originate from Nepal, a small landlocked country in South Asia. I spent seven years of my life in Nepal before moving to the United States. The reason being better job and education opportunities. Basically, a better life. Since arriving to the United States, I have lived all my life in Pennsylvania, but the cities have changed. The first city I lived in was Erie. I spent around 5 years in Erie before moving to Harrisburg at the end of June, 2016.


I am a huge fan of soccer. My favorite soccer team is Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo was the first player I saw on TV. I was watching a YouTube compilation of him. The things he did looked amazing and it seemed very amazing to me. At that time, he was playing for Real Madrid, so they became my favorite team. He has since moved on to another soccer team.


I went to Susquehanna Township Middle School for 2 years before choosing to go to Dauphin County Technical School. To me, DCTS seemed the best High School choice in Harrisburg. It offered you programs that can help you decide what you want to do in the future. You are basically four years ahead of the people that chose to go to normal High School.
