  • Shiva Acharya - Shiva was born in a refugee camp in Nepal and grew up seeing that the way people surpass through difficult situations is by helping one another.

He has served in the OBS (Organization of Bhutanese Society) in many capacities including teaching Engish and US citizenship. Shiva has also been a part of many academic organizations at Conrad High School, as well as serving on the student council there. Shiva plans to major in psychology and become a therapist.

Kaitlin is a volunteer at H.O.P.E. Tutoring, providing free classes in reading and math. She also volunteers at the North Texas Youth Honor Society. Those volunteer service experiences have lead Kaitlin to discover a passion for helping others.
