Angela Galbraith -President   My name is Angela Galbraith and I am a senior studying International Studies with a track in the Peace Corps Prep Program, along with Music and German minors. This year, I have the amazing opportunity to lead this initiative as the President of LNI. As a freshman in the fall of 2015, I wanted to know more and become more involved in the initiative before I went on our service trip to Lesotho, so I went to our first packing event at Wittenberg. I was amazed at how students were so passionate and had such a drive to help the Basotho people. I went on the winter trip in 2015 and I fell in love with the mountains, the night sky, the culture, the community , and most importantly the children. I witnessed how such a history of  brokenness could be intertwined in a place of such beauty. So I came back and had the same passionate fire inside of me that I had seen in others and I joined LNI. Lesotho claimed a piece of my heart, and I haven't missed a packing event since that first one in the fall of 2015. Three years later, my love and hope for our mission continues to grow each day and the dream that we have for our beloved friends of Lesotho is now a reality that I am continuously absolutely amazed to be a part of.

  Chloe Bradburn - Vice President   Lumela! I’m a senior sociology major, international studies/spanish/communication minors. I’m the Senior Class President for Student Senate at Witt, and I am also the Vice President for Sigma Delta Pi, Spanish national honors society. I participate in Jewish culture club, and I am a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority.  The reason I have become so passionate about Lesotho Nutrition Initiative is simple. After going on the trip summer of 2017, I came back completely excited and ready to continue helping. I learned throughout my time in Lesotho that while I cannot solely be the solution to any social issue, listening to what others need and being the best advocate possible would be the best way to continue positive change all the way from Wittenberg. Seeing the children in Ramabanta eat the meals that LNI packed was a moment I will never forget - which is a significant reason why I love LNI.

  Alexandra Joseph - Secretary   Hi! I'm Alexandra Joseph and I am a sophomore double majoring in Entrepreneurship and International Studies here at Wittenberg. I'm in LNI because I'm always looking for another way to help people and this seemed like a great opportunity. I quickly fell in love with the Initiative and can't wait to go to Lesotho in 2019! LNI has truly impacted my life in a way no other service project has and I feel we've also impacted lives in an effective way in Lesotho. I look forward to this year and serving you as Secretary!

  Justin Unternaher - Fundraising   Lumela!! (Hello), While I am currently the Faculty Student Coordinator for Student Senate and VP of External Relations for the University’s Student Program Board, I am a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major. I became involved with this nutrition initiative after going to the Lesotho service trip in the summer of 2017. Since returning, I have become increasingly passionate in Basotho culture and with the work that this initiative does. Experiencing the warm welcomes with open arms, I knew that I could not move on after returning. Joining LNI has thus allowed me to learn more about the country and culture, while still enabling me to impact  the lives of the many friends I made while there.

  Destiny Paulen - Social Media   Hi! My name is Destiny Paulen and I am a sophomore at Wittenberg this year. I am double majoring in Biology and Spanish and following the pre-med track. This year, I will be spending my time tutoring in Spanish, assisting in the General Biology lab, and organizing social media for LNI.

I am so excited to be a part of something that is actually helping the world, and I cannot wait to be in Lesotho next summer. My position in LNI gives me the opportunity to update this website, along with our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

  Ariel Moss - Event Planning   Hi! I’m Ariel! I’m an English major with an education minor and I'm a co-event planner for LNI. I joined LNI because of all of the amazing things about the Lesotho trip from two of my good friends. After being a part of LNI for a few months I got invited on the trip to Lesotho at the last minute and I decided that I had to witness all the beauty and meet all of the wonderful people that I was told so much about. I learned that all that I had heard was absolutely accurate and fell in love with country. I not only got to see all of the food that I had helped raise money for and pack, I also got to cook and serve it to the most adorable and deserving kids that had become my friends over the last two weeks. Getting to see the impact LNI has made all the work that we put in seem so much more worth it. I'm so thankful for the experience that I was lucky enough to have and am excited to help LNI grow in every way that I can.
