Hi everyone! These last few days have been super busy. Between school, extracurricular activities, and of course pageant planning, I haven’t had the time to do anything else!
But I was able to break away from my busy schedule to attend an amazing event put together by CIA. For those of you who don’t know what CIA is, here is all the info you need to know. “Children in Action (CIA) is an organization of young social activists who are passionate about children’s rights. What started initially as a small group of 5 friends who shared a desire to make this a safer and more just world for children everywhere, has today grown into an active group of more than 40 socially conscious youth aged 9 – 16 years old who attend 15 different schools.” I am proud to say I am now a member of CIA!
The event I went to was Skate it UP. It was fantastic! There were people skating, a silent auction, hot chocolate, and special guests (me included)!
I would like to take a moment to recognize Vishal and Ishan Vijay. Vishal is 14 and Ishan is 12. Because of their hard work and dedication, they were able to raise $10 000 from Skate it UP to build schools with Free the Children in India and Africa.
The Skate it UP was such an inspiring event. I am so proud of the work that Vishal and Ishan have done! I am also very proud of the CIA team members. It is because of the hard work and dedication these kids put in has allowed kids in Africa and India to get a school. But not just a school. They get education, friends, community, knowledge and a chance. Keep up the amazing work guys!!
