The author Anita Desai once said “Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow” and I find myself agreeing.

We can all accept that life is unpredictable and it’s this search for order amid all of life’s chaos that keeps us moving forward. When I chose to journey to Nepal to complete my Master’s in Public Health Practicum, I was unaware of the full spiritual journey I was about to embark on.

I chose Nepal partly because access to clean water is difficult to a majority of the country. As well as the opportunity arising with International Medical Relief to be able to volunteer with a group of respiratory therapists, nurses, and physicians at local clinics in the valley.
