El Camino High School
South San Francisco, CA
Umar is a freshman at El Camino High School in South San Francisco, California where he expresses his service through Students In Action, UNICEF and Key Club. He has always had a passion to serve his community and strongly believes all kids deserve opportunities and equal access to resources to develop their individual and unique potential to make an impact on this world. He believes that this next generation of world leaders will solve the issue of global warming and even send people to Mars! That is why he is so passionate that today’s youth not waste their potential. His work with SIA at El Camino includes a Dream Boxes service project, a school-wide Hunger Games in which we fundraise for a canned food drive, and their first El Camino High garden. In his free time, Umar enjoys playing basketball and imagining himself traveling around the world one day.
