Charlotte - EWB Humanitarian Design Summit - Nepal

Bachelor of Engineering/ Business Management
December 2017


One of my favourite memories from the trip happened at the end of my group's presentation about our design opportunity. All of the community representatives listened to our proposal and at the end, two people from different villages sparked up a bit of a debate, while our translator tried to keep up! From what he could relay back to us amidst the lively conversation, there seemed to be a lot of interest and exchanging of advice. It was really rewarding to see that our idea could be taken on board by each community in their own way, and that we were able to facilitate the swapping of information between leaders.

Another highlight was dressing up in traditional clothing just to dance the nut bush without music and only the beautiful singing of my group members!
