BIRTHDAY: July 30th
PERSONAL HISTORY: Both Bishnu and his younger brother Nikesh were orphaned after their mother and father died. Their uncle had been paying for Bishnu’s education but after tenth grade could no longer afford it. Nikesh, who has been with HCC for several years, approached us to see if we could help his brother, and after we met this dedicated and kind teen, we couldn’t say no.
WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL? Bishnu is a dedicated student studying for his Bachelors in Business Administration at university. He loves math and hopes to work in a bank or as a business manager after graduation. When Bishnu first joined HCC, he started as a shy boy. Today, he grows more and more comfortable in his new family and home. He lives at the annex apartment but often comes to our group home to help out with the younger students. He also used to help tutor at his grade school—he says that the experience was awesome because he likes to teach but also because he learned so much from the kids he was working with. His favorite book and movie is Harry Potter. He is great at budgeting and makes sure to only buy what he needs, generously sharing with others as well. He wants to thank everyone who has sponsored HCC so much: “I want to say thank you for helping me and giving me this opportunity.”
