2015 Top 20 Under 20™ award recipient
Neal Zuberi Attard, 19
After a difficult childhood, Zuberi has become directly involved with his community’s most pressing problems. He founded the “Student Activist Association,” which exposes new immigrant students to volunteer opportunities that help them integrate, build experience, and receive references needed to get jobs. While in high school, Zuberi led a youth group called “Boys to Men,” helping young men of all races talk about cultural and social pressures, and served as a peer educator for St. Stephen’s Community House, where he developed and facilitated workshops on harm reduction related to substance abuse. Zuberi also led the multicultural club, which addresses and reduces racism by bringing awareness to cultural celebrations such as Black History Month.
