Nidhi Ummettala is a senior at South Brunswick Highschool and has been a part of the Asha Princeton chapter team since 2013. Since she was 8 years old, she has contributed to this chapter through various activities such as creating posters, putting together informational videos, teaching DIY crafts workshops to kids, organizing yard sales, speaking on television, giving informative speeches, and more. When it comes to event coordinating, Nidhi organized the 2020 virtual run event and led a group of teen volunteers throughout the process. Nidhi also has actively used social media platforms to spread awareness on this cause because she believes in the importance of education to the children in India who are not as privileged. By volunteering, Nidhi has gained leadership experience, confidence and it has provided her with an opportunity to spread awareness on such a vital cause.
Besides being a teen volunteer at Asha, Nidhi interns at Enspire Academy where she teaches young kids how to be confident public speakers. Nidhi also participates in the Peers Assisting Life Skills (PALS) club at her school where she works with kids with autism. Nidhi is grateful to be able to have these experiences that allow her to be creative, and help others in the community. Nidhi is a huge sports and fitness lover as she plays two sports at her High School (Basketball and Field Hockey). She is also an honor roll student who excels academically. For fun, Nidhi enjoys reading, and singing.
