Chelsea Ament

Chelsea Ament (Women’s Reproductive Rights Program – WRRP): Chelsea’s interest in advocacy developed into a passion after entering the McMaster University B.Sc.N. program, where she was able to broaden her view regarding social justice and global health. It was during this time that Chelsea embarked on a ten-week clinical placement at a government hospital in Pokhara, Nepal. Chelsea also obtained a diploma in nursing at Mohawk College. Prior to her fellowship she spent three years working as a surgical nurse at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Chelsea’s fellowship was supported by Human Rights Internet in Ottawa. After her fellowship she wrote: “[I learned] to be very flexible, and that just because a plan or project goes nothing like you expected it would does not mean it was a failure.”



Travel – Nepal Style

This is the video I made in response to Corey Black‘s blog, Wretched Travel. I have been in the Kathmandu office for the past five weeks, but this video shows some of the interesting times spent in between Kathmandu and visits to the field.

    I actually covered my eyes when I saw them pulling the goats up top by the legs. Those luggage compartments are pitch black with minimal air, how on earth do they expect these animals to survive on these 8 hour bus rides like that? Much props to you for being able to make it through the whole ride!
