FEARLESS: Sneha Shrestha

Sneha Shrestha ’10, a native to Kathmandu, Nepal, recently received an Advancing Leaders Fellowship from World Learning for her fearless project. With it, she aims to provide a creative outlet for art and culture among young people in Nepal through the Kathmandu Children’s Art Museum (KCAM). This project will support a creative learning space for children as well as an opportunity for them to express themselves and investigate their own culture through art.


Sneha is committed to using art to promote social change, and she has been doing just that since her gradation. After studying Studio Art and Globalization Studies at Gettysburg, she has not only been successful in creating and sharing her own art, but she’s worked as a mentoring artist for inner city youth, in addition to writing and illustrating various children’s books.  We’re proud of Sneha’s fearless activism and dedication to social justice both in the U.S. and abroad. You can read about Sneha’s fellowship here and continue to follow her coming fearless adventures.

And a shout-out to Mike Parker and Dan Pino who have created D-Street Politics, a blog analyzing U.S. politics and discussing important issues with attitude. These two are definitely fearless when taking on issues that others avoid – check out their controversial articles and contribute to their conversations!
