Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” This not only means that we need to have good character, but also that we need to intentionally act in a way which influences the society we live in. Through our actions we seek to bring healthy change and make the world a better place. This award is intended to empower and inspire a student who lives these values and intends to act as an agent of change to improve the world around them in the area of social justice.
