Sophomore Dara Kashayar loves volunteering to help people who live in underprivileged communities. 

Since 1 of his parents lived in Oakland, Kashayar resonates with the people there and enjoys fostering growth in other communities. He is passionate about giving back to people who need support. 

In December 2019, he volunteered to help the Mayor of Oakland’s charity organize a holiday toy drive to provide for young children in the Oakland community. 

“I really wanted to expand my horizons and make myself a more cultured person,” Kashayar said. “I love that I can give back to the community where 1 of my parents is from.”

When he is not volunteering in Oakland, he is working with a non-profit organization connected to KQED called YR Media, a national network for young journalists and artists.
