In addition, Rupa Thapa won the first place award by the Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of South Bohemia for her thesis, titled "'The difference here is that we add more tomato sauce', From entrepreneurial journey to the integration experience of Nepalese migrants in České Budějovice: A Case study." (supervisor: PhDr. Salim Murad, Ph.D.).

According to the evaluators, "[Rupa Thapa] deals with a very unusual topic of integration and entrepreneurship of the Nepalese minority in the Czech Republic, which makes her work unique. By spontaneously penetrating the Nepalese community in České Budějovice, she managed to create a very authentic text. It can be assumed that the presented work will be valuable study literature in the future not only for newly arrived Nepalese citizens, but also for other nationalities. The work is written very legibly. This work is proposed by the commission for its originality and further real application to the award of the Dean of PF JU."


Congratulations, both!
