Youth Advisory Board Member
Bhavana spent five years of her childhood in India, which allowed her to gain a very personal passion for international development and helping those who are less fortunate. She believes in equal opportunity for everyone—including accessing education, health care, and political representation.
Bhavana hopes to use her time on the Youth Advisory Board to learn from other members and truly make a difference in each these areas. She believes that every girl deserves the opportunity to live up to her potential by attending school and that education is vital to having a successful and fulfilling life.
Bhavana is no stranger to advocacy, as this is her fifth year involved with speech and debate, through which she gains valuable public speaking and persuasive skills, alongside knowledge of current events and leadership training.
Bhavana is from Bloomington-Normal, Illinois.
