A bright and passionate international nursing student from Nepal with one more year of studies left at LaGuardia Community College who hopes to transfer to Columbia University.
Ever since high school, Sujata’s primary concern and passion has been helping others. In her native country, she used to volunteer in orphanages where she was helping in many different ways, including tutoring younger children. After coming to the United States, Sujata—like most of us—was overwhelmed by work and studying, and she found it difficult to find time to volunteer. She stumbled upon our blog and read the story of “How I Got Hooked on Helping Others” which inspired her to seek opportunities. She remembered the exhilarating feeling of helping others and is now determined to get involved in some extracurricular activities. This time, however, she has bigger dreams. She wants to make an impact and make changes in our society’s major issues.
