My name is May Leng and I am from California in the US. I decided to join GVI and go to Nepal because I have never been to a developing country before and I wanted to know what it was like since I have been living in Palo Alto my whole life and I wanted to help the community and experience their culture. When I arrived in Nepal, the staff were so inviting and welcoming that I already felt like I would enjoy my time in Nepal. The volunteering was an eye-opening experience because I got to see how the people of Pame lived and I was introduced to a completely different culture. I loved my time in Nepal because I got to explore Nepal, get to improve a school and have fun at the same time.
