1. OMG -- I'm going to Nepal!
2. I can't do it without a little help from you!

This summer, I will be traveling to the eastern part of Nepal for 2 months. While in Nepal, I will be working with a non-profit organization (ECCA), dipping my toes in a variety of projects, involving the design of a climate change information center, a little construction work here, a little English and environmental education teaching there, and a whole lot of promoting sustainability in the Letang village. I'm also looking to work on some independent research of own, primarily either with the advancement of conversion to solar technologies instead of oil lamps, and local water quality testing.

I am incredibly passionate about sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. This trip is just the beginning of what I hope to be a dream of a future in building sustainability from the roots up.

A little bit about myself:
I am a third year student at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. I am simultaneously pursuing a B.S. in Environmental Studies and a Master's in Environmental Studies will have both by age 21! That is exciting and a little bit terrifying at the same time. What makes it less terrifying for me is getting involved in work like that which I'll be doing in Nepal -- now that I know I'm following a dream, I can't wait to succeed.

Please help me reach my goal, and follow my dreams!
