This three-tier award program celebrates a wide range of activities driving impact from first-time actions like volunteering at a food pantry, tutoring, working with seniors and veterans to leadership roles in fundraising, organizing and speaking at events.
"Community service is a key part of who I am. I am hopeful and inspired by the UN global goal to end world hunger. This is a cause that is very dear to me. It is one of the reasons I work at the food pantry, where I am able to assist people directly and can contribute to the goal to end hunger. My personal long-term goal is to be a UN Ambassador one day, so I can further these efforts. For now, I am very happy to have the opportunity to make a difference in my local community," said Dhyasa Kumar.
