YWLC Participant Spotlight:

In November, Urvi raised $495 for Pangea by hosting a Talent Show, as well as through her fundraising efforts as an Ambassador!

Urvi is a Pangea Network Ambassador and a sophomore at The Woodlands High School, who attended YWLC in 2020. Due to COVID-19, she decided to host a virtual talent show to raise awareness about women empowerment, and she raised a total of $495 in the month of November through her fundraising efforts.

“I’ve always been an advocate for women empowerment and being in the YWLC gave me the opportunity to help the girls and women in need.”

You are amazing, Urvi!
