Fremont teen rocks

Not too long ago I wrote about Sejal Hathi, a Fremont teen who, at 15, founded an international nonprofit that aims to empower girls and women to become educated and self-reliant. Girls Helping Girls has reached thousands of girls in more than 15 countries and raised over $30,000 for computers, school supplies, scholarships and funding for start-up businesses.

Now 17, Hathi has been showered with numerous accolades, including the 2007 President’s Call to Service Award, as well as the MTV Teen Hero, Silicon Valley “It Girl” and Ellegirl.com’s Teen Hero titles.

Most recently, Hathi was featured on CNN’s “Young People Who Rock.” Check it out:
