Young Hero: Alma Atassi

Special | 2m 4s

After Alma's parents passed away in 2013, the responsibilities of family finances and helping to care for her siblings fell to her. She has maintained above a 4.0 GPA, tutors math and teaches Spanish to second-graders from a nearby school, and even started an all-ages music venue to raise money for charity. "Along the way, she has gained the respect and admiration of everyone who has known her."
