Arul Mehta 

I am a senior at Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio. I love being part of the school’s varsity tennis team, pre-med club, robotics club, and I’m also co-president of the table tennis club. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am interested in AI, astronomy, medicine, and chemistry for my future. These past two summers I had science research internship at Case Western Reserve University, where I was fortunate to work on Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis and Nutcracker syndrome under their distinguished faculty. I have been part of various self-development camps, retreats, and workshops within the United States, Trinidad, and India. I had a great experience teaching math and reading to students at Near West Intergenerational School for 4 months. I am very grateful for this wonderful opportunity to serve the Cleveland community as part of this shoe cyclist team. This simple act of service will help me in my personal growth and inspiration. Thank you for this amazing opportunity. “​Let us all consider how we may spur another on, towards love and good deeds.​”

“Happiness is giving and serving others.”

I’m a freshman at Lake Ridge academy in Ohio. I grew up with Montessori education where the focus was to become your best version.  I strive to realize my best potential and I’m humbled by this opportunity to serve as a shoecyclist volunteer.

I love to dance and have been learning classical dance for 9 years. I have been volunteering at Youth challenge and homeless shelter too in the past. Recently I took up an assignment to blog book reviews for teen literature. I also enjoy playing tennis for my high school team. I’m looking forward to serving Cleveland community by helping facilitate donation of gently used shoes to homeless shelters.
