Tanviz is a senior in Birmingham, Alabama. This is his first year on the National Youth Leadership Council. This year, Tanvis worked with his community to host a literacy campaign, which was comprised of a book drive, fundraiser, opportunity for tutoring, and screening of He Named Me Malala. When he’s not busy programming lego robots as the Captain of the Engineering and Robotics Team, he’s advocating for every child’s right to education, health, and safety as the President of the UNICEF Club. Tanviz enjoys writing for Scholastic’s Choices Magazine, serving as an attorney for the Birmingham City Teen Court, volunteering in his community as a member of the Alabama YouthServe Action Council, and playing soccer with his friends.
