We would like to recognize Mai Dinh as our January Gold Star Award winner! Here's what Mai had to say about her time serving with Freedom Readers.

"I am a senior at the Scholars Academy, an academic program associated with Horry County Schools and Coastal Carolina University. I've been involved with Freedom Readers since my sophomore year, so about 3 years now. I joined Freedom Readers because I heard information about it from a classmate and my sister encouraged me to join. After my first day tutoring, I fell in love with the environment and continued to volunteer, and I decided to help more by making videos for the organization."

Not only is Mai a dedicated tutor but she is an intelligent and talented young lady who will continue to accomplish great things!
