Congratulations . . .
... to Lutheran Services in America’s senior services intern Anita Sharma. Anita’s life had very difficult beginnings, as she was born and raised in a refugee camp in Nepal. Her family faced political violence and systematic ethnic cleansing, and they had to fight for basic necessities like food, water, shelter, and healthcare. Anita made it her life’s ambition to contribute to society by improving the health and quality of life of vulnerable people. She came to live in the United States in 2009 and, despite lacking English language proficiency, became the first person in her family to receive a college degree. Last week, Anita earned a Master’s Degree in Public Health from George Washington University. And, also last week, she started full time employment at Lutheran Services in America as our Manager of Philanthropic Engagement. Congratulations Anita!
