When an earthquake hit Nepal in late April, it affected many Nepalese students from Wittenborg University who feared for the lives of their families back home.
One of the students, Krishma Shrestha who is from the Kathmandu Valley, says she was on the phone with her mother when the earthquake happened. “I just heard my Mom scream and then everything went silent. It was so scary! A friend then told me what happened and I was able to eventually get in touch with my family. It is such a difficult time for all of Nepal and not being in the country makes one feel so helpless.”
