Hi, we are two 18 year old students funding for our trip to Daraja Academy in Kenya. I'm Bistra Barzakov, a graduating senior at San Marin High.During my stay at Daraja I will being showing the students how to release emotion through dance. I have danced all my life and have choreographed dances over the last four years. I'm excited to volunteer at Daraja because I fully believe in their mission of turning young girls into strong women and will be proud to be part of their vision.
I'm Chris Slack, a student at Santa Rosa Junior College where I am studing criminal justice. While at Daraja Academy, I will be showing the students self defense techniques used in everyday situations. I have been involved in combat sports for 7 years and am grateful for the oppurtunity to share my skills. I've competed in hundreds of wrestling matches, along with kickboxing and MMA fights. I am so excited to volunteer at Daraja Academy because I want to share my knowledge of self defense with people.
