Nina Kaushikkar is a 15-year-old freshman at Evanston Township High School. Prior to working with Allowance for Good, she has worked with Pratham, India’s largest NGO in the field of education, participating in a read-a-thon in the 5th grade in which she raised $2,000, as well as working with Kiva and Pennies for Peace in the 3rd grade, leading a fundraiser for the latter. In the summer after 6th grade, she became involved with Allowance for Good, participating in their 1st Global Philanthropy Summit. Since then, she has gone on to partake in both of the inaugural levels of their Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy program, the 2nd and 3rd Global Philanthropy Summits, and, most recently, their first Global Engagement Expeditions (GEE) venture to Nicaragua in August of 2014. She looks forward to taking part in their second GEE to Mexico this summer, and continuing to work with and support AfG as it continues to grow. Outside of her participation with AfG, she enjoys studying Latin, mathematics, the humanities, and science; some of her extracurricular activities include being on my school’s debate, scholastic bowl, and Model UN teams.
