Hi, my name is Aishwaria, and I'm going to be a highschool junior. What I love to do, over my free time is bake, play badminton, embroidery, help people in whatever I can help them for, and also raise awareness to situations. So far for IWC, I have written blogs about COVID-19 news, a blog for recommendation, and also made cards and posters for various different groups. (True Davidson Acres, Michael Garron Hospital, Trillium Health Partner.) While writing this blog, I found some fascinating things that might interest you readers. Throughout my experience with IWC, I hope to gain more skills, and help people in need throughout these tough times!
