Hello everyone, my name is Aimee. I am an artsy kind of person that loves pretty much anything that requires being outdoors. Some of my hobbies include cooking, weight training, running, snowboarding, knitting, writing, and reading. My favorites things are sushi, the awkward Yeti’s comics, animated movies, animals, and enjoying quality time with family and friends.
I started my path towards obtaining my master’s in public health after going on my first mission’s trip to Guatemala in February of 2013. Besides having volunteered in Guatemala, I teach a weekly woman’s Bible study group and help out bi-weekly with bringing Christ to children in a low-income neighborhood. I have a heart to see people physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy. I believe that change can only begin through knowledge.
My name is Ranju Karki, and I was born in Nepal. I came to the United States of America for college at the age of 18 years old. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the Liberty University and have been working as a nurse since 2009. I am currently enrolled in a Master’s in Public Health degree at Liberty University.
I have always had a keen interest in public health, and I believe community empowerment plays a major role in achieving optimal health in any society. Community empowerment enables the communities to increase control over their lives.
It is my vision to learn all skills needed for community empowerment and return back to Nepal. With the knowledge, and experience I am hopeful that I can make a difference.
