Meet Rabi

Rabi Rajkarnikar lives in Nepal and is currently our second board member who lives outside the United States. He is excited to help plan our all-school 2021 Reunion and afterwards, is anxious to be our rep in hosting overseas reunions for AIS/AES alumni–particularly for those who live in the areas of Nepal, India, Bhutan, Bangaldesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Rabi has previous experience on several boards and will be an asset to ours. He is married and has two sons, one who will be attending college in New York in the fall of 2019. Rabi will be visiting stateside more often now and considers it very doable in 2021 to attend our reunion then. Rabi, from the Class of 1985, joined our board as a Director on 3 May 2019.
