In 2018, when Carola Eijsenring asked me if I would like to take over the Get in Touch Program in the future, she caught me by surprise. I didn’t know how to react. But I knew, it was an honor to be offered such an amazing program. Get in Touch had been one of the most important parts of my life since my journey in Eindhoven that ‘no’ wasn’t going to be the answer. It was, however, going to be challenging because I never thought I would be running a program by myself.
So, I accepted Carola’s offer and started my journey under her guidance. 2019 was almost over and I was thinking of a name for my company. Many names were crossed out. By then, my husband already had suggested about “Kuroosh”. I love crocheting and “Kuroosh” means crochet hook in Nepali. But I wasn’t sure how well it will work in the international society.
One day Carola dropped by my house with a Birthday gift for me. She asked me if I had picked a name already. I told her a few of them. And then I also told her what my husband has suggested. Carola immediately liked it. She encouraged me to go with that name because it is meaningful in what my plans are.
With the beginning of 2020, I finally registered my company ‘Kuroosh’.
