Janani is a freshman at Acton Boxborough Regional High School. Over the summer, she wanted to do something purposeful and give back to my community which is why she decided to volunteer.  "By volunteering, I was able to give back to the community and say “thanks” to all those who have done so much for us," says Baskaran.  Other than volunteering, she likes to sing, read books, play tennis, watch movies, and spend time with friends.
