Lindsey Youngquist is selected to represent Rotary District 5050 as an Ambassadorial Scholar for the year.
Youngquist graduated Magna Cum Laude from Seattle University with a major in pre-med and biology and will be leaving for Nepal on Aug. 15 to study community health at Dhulikhel Medical Institute.
She will also volunteer at the local Hospital for Rehabilitation of Disabled Children and at the Kavre-Banepa School.
“I look forward to developing relationships with the local Rotary Clubs and becoming a part of their community,” said Youngquist. “I am excited to explore my interests in global health while in Nepal and I also look forward to trekking in the Himalayas.”
You can purchase some of Youngquist’s art depicting life in Nepal, which have been printed into greeting cards, for a donation of $15. Profits from card sales go to The Rose International Fund for Children.
The paintings can be viewed on Flickr by typing “Lindsey Youngquist” into the search box.
