Siddhi Talekar

Participating in activities that involve helping others has become especially important to me as that is something I plan to pursue in my career. I am so thrilled to be able to give back to the community all thanks to Vision-Aid. Vision-Aid, as a non-profit organization, enables me to help specifically the visual impaired. What makes this so special is that I get to help through dance – something I have enjoyed doing ever since pre-school. Doing this partnership allows me to find common ground between two careers that are important to me: dance and volunteering. As a former Vision-Aid ambassador, and Presidential Community Service Award medalist, being able to combine both causes through my arangetram means so much to me, and I am so excited to see all the good that will come from this performance.
