In 1992, Bhimal, 42, and his wife Nila, 38, fled ethnic cleansing in Bhutan. Their son, 14, was born while the couple sought refuge in Nepal. After arriving in New York in 2015, Bhimal quickly secured a full-time job. Bhimal, who learned English in Nepal, practices English with Nila every night, building on the knowledge she has gained through language classes. Their son is enrolled in a local high school and quickly adapting to American culture.
