Get to know a Korbel Grad

Anya Cherneff

Anya Cherneff, a Josef Korbel School of International Studies, Class of ’10, MA International Human Rights has been extremely busy since graduation. She co-founded and is the Executive Director of Empower Generation, a social business empowering women to power their communities with clean energy in Nepal.

She wrote to us saying, “I attribute the immense impact we have created for women and the energy poor in this short time to this determination of spirit, enhanced by the skills and experiences gained from my time spent at JKSIS.”

Recently, Anya gave a TEDx Talk on her work to create women-led, market-based distribution to bring power to the 20% of the world’s population living in darkness. Her talk can be viewed here!

We are proud of Anya’s work, and we look forward to what she will do in the future!
