On a volunteer trip to Nepal with EMPOWER NEPALI GIRLS (a non-profit providing scholarships for underprivileged, marginalized girls), I got a first hand look into the lives of Nepalis, both young and old. It was here during a school visit, where we got to see what school life was like for those who were lucky enough to attend, as opposed to those who are forced to work at a young age.

Despite their hardship, however, what truly made a lasting impression on me was the Nepali sense of spirit and their resilience, in seeing life as a privilege and having faith in a brighter future.
