Saika Kibria – Los Angeles, CA / UCLA

I have been a regular volunteer with DCI since I was in elementary school. I also went to Bangladesh to work with DCI-sponsored children. It’s truly heartwarming to see how the work I do here is helping so many living in extreme poverty. I am very proud to say that I received the DCI Youth Volunteer Award in 2011 and was given a chance to speak at DCI’s Conference on Child Rights & Sight at Yale. My volunteer work and this recognition definitely helped build my resume and made me a better person today.
