My name is Daniela Tejada, I am 17 years old and I want to share with you a little bit of my story and what led me to start the Meds4Kidz Foundation.
All my life I have witnessed poverty and its devastating effects, especially in my mom’s home country, Bolivia. I grew up with the desire to help those less fortunate and help them improve their lives. I always helped and volunteered to various causes with my parents, as community service is always one of our priorities when we travel.
However, it wasn’t until 2012, when I went to the United Nations as a Student Ambassador, that I figured out how I could really help at a larger scale. At the UN, I saw how I could open a non-profit organization, and with the support of others in my community, we could all together help save these children.
