Ninth Grade WPS student, Maya Tharoo, is someone you will never forget. An accomplished student with a big smile and a drive and determination to truly make the world a better place. Therefore, we could not be more proud to share that Maya was chosen as a speaker at TedxSugarland, which will occur on Saturday, October 27th, in Sugar Land, TX.

Maya's topic will be, "What Youth Philanthropy is to a Youth."  Since the age of seven, she has been deeply involved in volunteering and philanthropy work with the Arnold Palmer Foundation and premature babies. When she was nine, she founded the Miracle Makers Foundation, whose goal is to support preemies and their families globally. In 2014, she was awarded the Orlando Community Builder Rising Star Award from Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, and in 2018, she was presented with the elite honor of the Disney Dreamer and Doer Shining Star Award for Orange County. 

Congratulations to Maya for this incredible achievement, and to view the LIVE Stream of Maya's talk, please click here:
