My name is Nishal Basnet, and I am a rising Junior at St. Lawrence University. I am majoring in sociology and minoring in public health. I am also Ronald E. McNair Scholar, Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) scholar, and the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program scholar. My interest is in social work, focusing on immigrants' and refugees' welfare in the United States. My goal is to get a Doctorate in clinical social work. I am interested in research opportunities on public policy and public health of the refugee and immigrant population. I aim to inspire the younger generation, the refugee youth, and first-generation students to attend higher education and give back to their communities.
