Name: Neha Maharjan
Location: Irving, Texas
Position: Advocate

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I am from a developing country, Nepal. One of my goals in life has always been to be a part of development for underserved communities. I have seen people struggle for basic needs, and I want to help them.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
To be a part of something larger than just an individual–to make a difference in the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

  1. I like to sing when I cook (a personal concert)
  2. I play guitar. I read motivational books
  3. I have two names – Nikki and Neha. My family calls me Nikki, my official name is Neha.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. For $50, I will send a video of Brewster (my Yorkie) barking “thank you.”
  2. For $100, I will record a personalized thank-you song.
  3. For $150, I will give a shout out on Facebook saying how awesome you are! Along with my cute Yorkie’s picture!
