Prudential recognized Siena at her school and now she's bound for Washington, D.C., where she will spend three days collaborating with other teens across the nation. In addition, Prudential will recognize 10 top students with $10,000 for their charity.
Siena told us she was thrilled to get the news. "Yes. It was pure excitement. Especially when I got the letter. It was pure excitement in my house."
Teens Helping Teens is an incredible nonprofit started by these sisters. Teens collect food, hygiene products, and clothes for homeless students here in the valley. In addition to stocking high schools, they are huge supporters of the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth.
Executive Director Arash Ghafoori says, "So many teens are focused on partying and Facebook. For a teen to really think about how there are homeless youth out there ... people less fortunate ... to already have that type of perspective at that age, to be community minded at that age, is incredible."
