Adding strength to Student United Way

posted on 25th April 2018, UWBE

Shining examples of youth power

Simran and Sonali are but buds themselves, and yet, they are spreading cheer and love with the maturity of adults. Twins who pack double power into their lives have been volunteering from childhood. These teenagers spend their vacations sharing knowledge and joy. They recently volunteered at a Born Learning Centre and say that they learnt as much and got as much joy as the children they spent time with. United Way Bengaluru values the volunteering efforts of Simran and Sonali and wishes them all the best in life! We will be proud of all their achievements in life. We also salute their parents, particularly Reema their mother who is nurturing and encouraging their talents and standing by them all the way! Hear from them in their own voices…

Simran Ajwani

My name is Simran Ajwani and I am currently studying in 11th grade. I have a great passion for Math and Chemistry and want to study engineering in the future. Also, I am an athlete and I have participated in many competitions.

I have volunteered since my middle school. I am very motivated to volunteer as I get the opportunity to view the larger world beyond our homes. Whatever effort we put into giving back to our society goes a long way.

I am involved with a project called BLC (Born Learning Centres) with United Way Bengaluru. We work with children aged 3 to 6 years old. I teach the children English alphabets and basic drawing skills.

Every time I visit them, I get a sense of joy and accomplishment. They are full of energy and working with them really touches my heart. This experience has added to my collaborative and time management skills.

I am very thankful to United Way of Bengaluru for this wonderful opportunity. I look forward to working more with these wonderful children.

Sonali Ajwani

My name is Sonali Ajwani and I am a student studying at TISB in the 11th Grade. I love Biology and hope to someday pursue a career in medicine. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports like basketball and tennis.

I believe we should try and make a difference in society – no matter how big or small. Volunteering is one way we can give back to our community. I have volunteered since my middle school years and I cherish the memories I have built along the way. Community service has taught me the importance of investing in our community and helping the people who live in it.

I am involved with a project called (BLC) Born Learning Centres with United Way Bengaluru. Working with these children and seeing them learn so well has brought me tremendous joy and it also keeps me mentally stimulated. We have been working on pre-reading English skills and basic colors. I love the children’s enthusiasm and look forward to visiting them and teaching them something new that they enjoy. These experiences have added to my self-confidence, given me a sense of achievement and strengthened my teaching skills.

I am very thankful to United Way of Bengaluru for this wonderful opportunity. Along with my twin sister, I look forward to working on more fun and educational activities with the children at the BLCs.
