Bank of America announced that Priya Sharma of American Canyon has been selected as one of its Student Leaders. She's now part of an eight-week paid summer internship providing students with first-hand experience in serving their communities. These students are working with a local nonprofit, 10,000 Degrees, earning $17 per hour. They also receive a Chromebook and will have the option to voluntarily participate in in-person activities as part of the internship.
Sharma is an American Canyon High School graduate who has been taking college-level classes through Napa Valley College since she was a freshman, and she’ll continue with classes there in the fall. Her interest in the ACLU National Institute – and equality for all – led her to being political chair leader for the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim and South Asian Alliance. For four years, Priya was a representative for Peer Court, an alternative approach to the traditional juvenile justice system.
