Community service

I have been engaged in community service/volunteerism which enabled me to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide a service to those who need it most

American Red Cross

Blood Drive Ambassador

As a Blood Drive Ambassador, I’ve volunteered in blood donation facilities during peak COVID-19 and helped raise awareness about the importance of donating blood to patients battling cancer/traumatic injury. I’ve registered 300+ donors for appointments and conducted COVID-19 screenings. 

Sewa International

Lead Youth Volunteer

As a youth lead volunteer I helped Sewa raise several fundraisers, from musical events to cricket tournaments. I helped my township by volunteering in park cleanups and the West Whiteland Township Center Historical Commission, where I filed and transcribed historical artifacts from my community. I also designed flyers for the local Malvern Sai Temple to raise awareness about festivals and fundraisers. I volunteered in Indian cultural events, particularly at my local Hari Om Mandir Yoga Center. I mentored a team of middle schoolers to organize a virtual video game fundraiser  for COVID-19 relief.

Dandiya Fundraiser with 1.5k people

Shakti Foundation

Lead Youth Volunteer

As a lead volunteer, I’ve led several initiatives to combat hunger and support underprivileged and mentally-challenged children. By talking to local companies and businesses, I also brought sponsors when organizing a Dandiya fundraiser event which raised funds to feed the hungry.  I’ve also spearheaded a Chick-Fil-A carwash fund raiser  to purchase  backpacks for children at local churches.  

Thank you video I edited for grand sponsors

Diwali Food Drive/Mela

Lead Youth Volunteer

I’ve helped annual Diwali food drive that has been a tradition around November timeframe in communities around me. Partnered up with local groceries and Chester County Food Bank and raised awareness about our drive.  As a whole raised 30+ metric tons of non-perishable foods and were recognized in newspapers. I also helped spread awareness about a Diwali Mela (social event with vendors) via social media and went door-to-door selling Wawa hoagie coupons to donate to local food banks.

Educate 2 Empower (E2E)

Founder of Charitable Organization (www.e2empower.org)

I’ve realized the youth have a potential to create a larger impact on their communities, but there is a lack of service engagement in youth. Hence, I partnered with a like-minded friend to co-found E2E, an organization with a pay-it-forward concept wherein youth leaders can educate other youth about global/local issues and empower them with volunteering opportunities to address these problems. I received endorsements from local companies, secured 7.5K+ platform views, and registered 50+ youth volunteers.

I envision scaling my project globally and amassing a network of dedicated youth volunteers to create an unprecedented difference in the world.
