Navi Singh

Co-Service Coordinator


Navi is HCRASC’s Vice President, a region that is beloved to her and that she’s never humble about. She started off as Charitable Activities coordinator for her school’s SGA and region- due to loving the feeling of helping her community, she thought she might as well tackle state ;). Navi wants to bring that excitable energy, creativity, inclusivity, and hands on experience to MASC’s services this year. So, Let’s not be afraid to get our hands dirty this year! Navi is a senior, but she is a child at heart

 


Anusha Krishnan

Co-Service Coordinator


Hi! My name is Anusha and I am a service coordinator for MASC. I’m in 8th grade and go to Roberto Clemente Middle School. I am a Special Elections Director in my regional SGA and vice president in my school. I love to play the violin in the Maryland Youth Orchestra and do traditional bharatanatyam dance. I also love to play volleyball with MVSA and horse-back ride. My favorite show is the flash (don’t hate me) and I enjoy reading and taking photos in my free time. I also participate in the Young Artists of America theater group which I love! And of course, I am very passionate about SGA and student advocacy! This year I hope to aid other counties in creating service projects and service days as well as planning our own!
