At A Woman's Place (AWP) we are lucky to have our Young Adult Advisory Board (YAAB) volunteers who bring a fresh and youthful perspective to our mission. Naiya has brought passion to whatever task she is undertaking and sets a great example for us all.
Q: What's on your Bucket List?
A: There are many things on my bucket list. The top one is to celebrate a New Year's Eve in Times Square.
Q: What is something that not many people know about you?
A: I am a vegetarian by birth. Since the day I was born I have never touched any form of meat.
Q: Why did you choose to volunteer?
A: As I begin to think about what I want to do in my life, I have come up with one answer: Whatever I do, I want to make a difference and volunteering gives me that opportunity.
Q: What is your favorite moment so far at AWP?
A: I really enjoyed helping organize the domestic abuse and violence awareness Walk to Empower and 5K last October.
Q: Any advice you would give to potential or new volunteers?
A: AWP is the perfect place to help make a difference.
Thank you Naiya for being a part of AWP and doing your part to create a safer community!
