Sonnia and Shannan are just days away from this amazing journey. For Sonnia, it has been four years since she’s traveled to Nepal. She is looking forward seeing everyone again, as well as meeting 11 scholars that she hasn’t yet met in person! She can’t wait to introduce Shannan to chiya (Nepali tea) at some of her favorite hangouts with the many dear friends she has in KTM.
Shannan, on the other hand has never been to Nepal. She’s excited to share this journey with Sonnia as they celebrate International Women’s Day and the 14th Anniversary of the Bo M. Karlsson Foundation with the staff, board, current scholars and alumnae.Photo By: Kate Coffey
Perhaps the most exciting part will be catching up with all the latest successes of our young women, professional and personal, and letting them know in person just how proud we are of all of them.Photo By: Ellyn Norris
