Last summer, Smrithi Sukumar, a junior at International Community School, was one of 57 teens selected from over 700 applicants for a summer internship through Teens in Public Service (TIPS).
She interned at Faith in Action, a non-profit organization in Sammamish, that supports senior independence.
At the end of her internship, Smrithi was awarded the "Jill's Angel Award" by Teens in Public Service for her "extraordinary compassion and understanding of working with and caring for the elderly" in her community.
