Tye Buettner has always wanted to do some aid work in Africa.
Now 22, she has opted to miss her graduation ceremonies from nursing school to spend time doing community service projects in Uganda for three months.
“I am so fortunate to have grown up in Moose Jaw, to have had opportunity upon opportunity and to have been university educated,” said Buettner, who finished her registered nursing schooling and passed her board exam at the University of Saskatchewan this April.
