Bio: Riya is a final year law student at the Kathmandu School of Law and is also the “Goodwill Ambassador” of Rakhshya Nepal – an organization that works to advocate for the legal status of women who freely choose to earn a living in the business of sexual services. Her bi-cultural background and focus on community collaboration have led her to pursue a number of volunteer opportunities and SFL leadership projects. She was introduced to libertarian philosophy in 2012 at the Asia Liberty Forum and  joined SFL as a Charter Team Leader in 2013. She served on the inaugural Executive Board of South Asia in 2014 and was among the organizers of the first Annual South Asia SFL conference. She loves the combination of yoga and liberty, grabbing a yoga mat and a libertarian book whenever she has the free time.
