Read what Riya has to say!

“I am a final year optometry student at QUT and I work part time at an independent optometry practice in Brisbane. I have been itching to be a part of this trip since I first heard about it when I started my degree so I’m really excited to finally have enough skills and knowledge to be able to come along and contribute to the beautiful people in Nepal!

At the end of last year, I was lucky enough to be part of an amazing trip through Mexico and South America. A few highlights of the trip included a VOSH mission in Mexico where we provided basic eye exams/dispensed donated glasses to the people of Ciudad Guzman, as well as completing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.

I love hiking and exploring south-east Queensland, as well as spending days at the beach.
