ARUSHI GAUTAM

Founder of Lend A Hope

I enjoy taking up different initiatives to bring about change or just to gain an insight into the world beyond the bubble I have lived in. I began my journey to help my community when I was just 12 and since then I have worked with Non-Profits on projects such as literacy, substance abuse, building a senior citizen helpline, and spreading awareness on domestic violence. Working on these projects hiked my interest in building my own Non-Profit. My vision for this nonprofit is to bring love and positivity to our community in an effort to improve my community's mental wellbeing. Check out my blogs!

RENUSREE CHITTELLA

Director of Activities

Hi, my name is Renusree Chittella and I am currently a senior at Eastlake High School. From a young age, I loved to get involved with those around me and since then I have worked to give back to my community as much as I can. From volunteering with my parents at our local temple to tutoring students in various subjects in STEM my passion for helping and educating only escalated. I joined Lend A Hope to broaden my passion for helping as well as advocating for mental health. In my free time, I love to research psychology and understand why we behave the way we do which stimulated my interest and advocacy for mental health. I hope that as a Director of Activities for Lend A Hope, I can use my skills to plan fun and engaging activities to give back to our community as well as increase awareness for mental health through these activities.
