Summer CSGC Grant Update: Providing Meals in The California Bay Area

This summer, through the help of the CSGC, I am redistributing excess food in the Bay Area. I am partnering with local restaurants and my local food bank to deliver leftover meals and ingredients. Restaurants must throw away perfectly good food due to regulations, so my plan is to collect the food that did not sell that day and drop it off at my local food bank.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Examining How Developing Countries Have Protected Our Environment Through Their Judicial Systems

This summer the CSGC funded my project to research and develop a report on how developing countries have taken action to preserve the environment through various court cases. My goal is to share my findings with others, beginning with the Deerfield community through a short video or article as well as a report. I would like to spread knowledge on an overlooked aspect of the environmental movement in an attempt to encourage others to take more action and help out with the movement.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Preparing The Next Generation

Even before the pandemic, education has been a big problem as many students are not exposed to enough opportunities. My goal for this project is to provide a learning experience for kids and provide them with useful computer science skills that will help them in the future.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Redesign of Outdated Farming Storage Solutions in Rural China

The problem right now with rural areas across China is the fact that their infrastructures are falling behind. Rodents and insects often spoil the farmers harvest, and I want to utilize my architectural interest and skills to help farmers. I plan to use the architectural skills I have studied at Deerfield to formulate a plan for a new prototype storage solution that can be used in the future on a wider scale.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Lacrosse The Nation’s #BringBackLax Campaign

With the help of the CSGC and Mr. Howe, I am in the process of making a meaningful and impactful contribution in my local community this summer by generously purchasing new uniforms and apparel as well as donating gently used Deerfield lacrosse equipment such as jerseys, gloves, masks, and other types of athletic equipment.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Bracelets for Good: Give and Share Your Support

Over the past month, I have been working with three organizations – Mālama Maunalua, Valor Global Foundation, and OpenHands – to host a fundraiser using bracelets. I created three bracelets, one for each organization, which people can buy to help solve a specific problem in the world.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Taking A Step Forwards in Solving the Opioid Crisis

This situation has particularly exacerbated in the community of Los Angeles, especially the downtown area of Westlake, Harvard Heights, and Koreatown. The demographic shows that more than half (53%) of the opioid addiction doesn’t come directly from doctors, but from leftover drugs from households of friends/relatives.

Summer CSGC Grant Update: Online Tutoring Solution for Underprivileged Kids

According to a recent article from Politico, in the poorest neighborhoods of Chicago, fewer 9th and 10th grade students with access to tutors failed, and majority improved almost a full letter grade. If more communities prioritized free tutoring programs, schools could work to close the socioeconomic achievement gap by leveling the educational playing field and providing access to quality education and personalized learning for children in need.
