Congrats to Hufsa Ahmad for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: NAMI OC
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Hufsa has volunteered for NAMI OC in many different areas. She worked to create and grow our social media campaigns. She has starred in videos which brought awareness to the stigma surrounding mental illness and is a young advocate for all issues facing the mentally ill.
Today, however, NAMI OC would like to recognize Hufsa for outstanding leadership as a team captain for our 2014 NAMIWalks. This fundraiser sparked Hufsa’s creativity, humor and charisma. She inspired and led her teammates to not only fundraise but encourage other to spread the word to walk for mental health.
Her team, the Stigma Smashers, was not only one of the top grossing teams but they embraced the event by dressing up as super heroes. Hufsa leading the way as the incredible Hulk was seen smashing “stigma” with her green Hulk hands. Her team had so much fun and entertain the massive crowd of walkers.
We look forward to what may be up her sleeve for 2015.
Thank you Hufsa!”
