Today, our #MondayMemberSpotlight is featuring Asmita Diyali. Asmita is serving a 6-month term as a family services AmeriCorps member at the Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity. Specifically, she has been working with Nepali families translating and walking them through the family selection process.
“I am enjoying interpreting for [Nepali families]. It’s kind of refreshing for me as well. I gained so much knowledge about Habitat. … I am learning so much about how housing works. All the family service employees are very kind and helpful.”
