“Being an Akshaya Patra Youth Ambassador allows me to play a role in an outstanding and prominent cause. It brings me surplus joy to know that I am helping out with such a noble cause. I wrote handwritten letters, organized booths at picnics and festivals such as the Federation of India festival, and much more to raise my funds, allowing me to explore the diverse methods of fundraising. I love being a Youth Ambassador, as it enabled me to help children in India who may not be as fortunate as I am. I intend to contribute my effort to Akshaya Patra in the future by raising awareness and donations of the acclaimed foundation and help reach the goal of feeding 5 million mouths by 2020.”
