Sahitya Suresh

Malvern, Pennsylvania

Sahitya Suresh, 14, of Malvern, Pa., an eighth-grader at Great Valley Middle School, worked with a friend to create a charitable initiative called “Cards for Care,” and so far has been able to donate more than $600 to benefit young patients at the Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. Sahitya, who learned about the struggle other children face when her brother was born with health issues, has dedicated a great deal of time to creating designs for the cards and selling them at community events.
