Imagine setting foot in a new country with an unfamiliar culture and language you can not understand.
Now, imagine doing that all alone.
Ludo Guisti knows, firsthand, how that feels. The Italy native came to Utah four years ago for school. After becoming seriously injured in a car crash without any medical insurance or support, the young student decided she wanted to help others avoid finding themselves in similar situations.
That is why Guisti started her own foundation.
