Thapaliya, along with his parents and brothers, immigrated from Nepal to Lancaster in 2010. His relatives were able to survive the earthquake, but a few friends in the capital Kathmandu were killed.

Thapaliya is set to graduate Elizabethtown in May with a degree in biology. He says he plans to visit Nepal, for the first time since his family immigrated, this fall.
