Carissa Gurung, born in Refugee camp in Nepal and raised by a single parent (Father). In 2010, my father considered to resettle in the United States for my better future due to lack of opportunity and difficult life style in refugee camp. Although, I continued my education in Worcester North High School for two years. Then I transferred to Manchester West High School and Honorably graduated in 2014, even after getting married and having a first child while studying in high school and second child while studying at snhu. I never give up on my education and passion of becoming a police officer, because I knew from a very young age that police work would be the career that I wanted to pursue and education means opportunity, which will help me to gain and extend the knowledge, and have better understanding of our American Criminal Justice System. Thus, I wanted a career where I was not behind a desk; a career where I would be on the front lines and where I would make a positive impact in my community. I believe that it takes a special mindset to pursue a career in law enforcement and often the motivations for becoming a police officer are wildly different from those in other careers. Although, I continued my education at Southern New Hampshire University to pursue my B.S. in Justice Studies while concentration in Policing and Law Enforcement, and Minors in Sociology and Psychology.
