Sujita Basnet is a second year student at the George Washington University, where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering. Along with school she is currently interning at Capitol Hill for a Congressman who comes from a physician’s background.

Born and raised in the United States, her involvement in the Nepalese community along with her frequent visits to Nepal have driven her to become passionate about bringing changes to rural Nepal. She is especially interested in working to diminish the social stigma that has hindered the empowerment of many marginalized groups in Nepal.

Currently, she serves as a liaison for Care Women Nepal, a non­profit whose mission is to provide care and to empower the youth and female population of rural Nepal. Their work focuses on issues ranging from education to healthcare to social mobilization.She is closely involved in their Uterine Prolapse project and actively fundraises and promotes awareness among the community.

In 2011, Sujita took a trip to Nepal where she came to the realization that fostering change in any aspect of rural Nepal is extremely difficult due to the social and cultural stigmas that persist in the community. Ever since her trip she has been working alongside several non­profits as well as the Nepalese youth in the United States to help raise awareness about this cultural hinderance.
