Christina Lee, a third-year Law and Arts (Human Rights) student, has already experienced the power of university students to change the world.

She visited Batase, a village in Nepal, for the first time in 2016. In 2018 she embarked on the journey of a lifetime back to the country that stole her heart – with the goal of building a 21st-century library and stopping human trafficking.
