Hello family and friends,
I’m writing to reconnect with loved ones and ask for your support in my future.
As most of you know, I am an acupuncture student who is about to graduate. I have chosen to become a healer, but first I need to learn compassion. There is nothing more humbling and significant than donating time to people in need of help.
At open school, we followed the idea of ‘walkabouts’ to learn more about ourselves. I am currently about to embark upon a new walkabout while I move from the safety of life as a student into the world of adulthood. Everything about who I am is changing and this time is a crucial pivot in outlining my path.
To this end, I am planning on traveling from the end of August through December with two volunteer groups, Global Alternative Healthcare Project (GAHP) and Mindful Medicine Worldwide (MMW). These groups will give me the opportunity to travel to remote areas of Nepal and Bali to treat hundreds and hundreds of people. In a mere 3 months of volunteering, I will have the opportunity to help more patients than I have in the last three years at school. This is an opportunity for me to help people who are in dire need of medical care. These are people who in some cases have never visited a doctor in their entire lives.
I can’t say for sure what will happen during this time, but I know that this will be a life changing experience both for me, and the people that I am able to treat.
I am asking for your help by making a donation of as little or as much as you would like offer. Donations can be sent to my paypal or by mail to my home address:
7723 18th Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98115
You can also help in other ways by donating frequent flyer miles, medical supplies, fundraising ideas, or by forwarding this message to others who have a heart for sending medical professionals to populations in need.
Thank you, please let me know if you are interested in receiving email updates about my journey.
