Samir Mongar

Colorado State University
Class of 2026

Samir was born very weak in a refugee camp in Nepal and didn’t start to walk until the age of 3. At 6 years old, he started school but found it difficult to learn anything. He had a hearing disability, but at the time, no one knew that. When he arrived in the United States, he was diagnosed with a hearing disability. Shortly after he got hearing aids, Samir started to excel at learning, but had to play catch up on all the education he missed in Nepal. In high school, he started taking up leadership roles and in his senior year was the Co-Student Body President. He also started backing the community by volunteering at various places, like his high school food bank and Denver Public Library.
