Neil Dogra

Mequon, Wisconsin

Neil Dogra, 16, of Mequon, Wis., a sophomore at University School of Milwaukee, produced a film, “Crescent of Hope,” inspired by his volunteer experience working with refugees at the Crescent Learning Center. A grandchild of refugees himself, Neil regularly spends time with children at the center, helping them with homework, playing sports and teaching them how to play guitar; he also volunteers with a community and health center that provides healthcare to uninsured and underinsured refugees.
