Berkeley High School STAR

"For the past few months I’ve been holding bake sales at different locations around Berkeley to raise money for a cause I’m very passionate about— the Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar. I was lucky enough to be able to actually fly to the Bangladesh-Myanmar border where the camps are located, to spend time with the refugees and distribute first-hand the funds that were raised through the bake sales. The money amounted to about 50 thousand in the local currency, and I distributed envelopes to 93 families, with enough to feed them for one week."
