“I commit because what Head & Hands achieves for the youth of NDG and beyond with so few resources is incredible to witness. If I can give them just a little bit more to work with, how many more youth can they help?”- Zahra
In 2010, Zahra came to Head & Hands as a six month videography intern, and we felt so lucky to have this multi-talented lady on board! She left her mark with a series of rad videos including the Do my Ladies Run This?! mini documentary, the Ask me about my Faggity Ass profile, and Since 1970, our 40th anniversary video. Zahra had been rooting for us during last fall’s Aviva competition, and when she found out we didn’t make the cut, she signed up as a monthly donor to ‘do her part’ to bring Street Work services back to NDG.
Name: Zahra B.
Monthly since: February 2013
I fill my days with: I work as an administrator and communications coordinator for a non-profit, and I am also a classically trained singer.
As a teenager I was: Hermione Granger (an insufferable know-it-all)
If I won a trip anywhere in the world I would: Take all my friends with me.
Is there a particular Head & Hands program that you are passionate about? I think each one of them is great. But the two I connect with most deeply are the counseling and Street Work. I know how hard it is as a young person to access affordable, non-judgmental counseling services. I know some friends who could have used it. And as for Street Work, there are too many youth who are given up on, who really just need someone to support them in practical and uplifting ways. We need this program.
Song I have stuck in my head right now: Whatever we’re working on in choir or my voice lessons.
If I could change one thing at Head & Hands: Maybe a bigger building
