WASHINGTON — As a young child, Dalya Romaner learned to appreciate her surroundings and lend a hand when people were in need.
“I am very fortunate,” said Romaner, 18, a high school senior at Yavneh Academy in Dallas.
“And I appreciate the people who have made my city and community what it is. I learned that I need to notice what’s around and when [people] need help.”
For the past two years, Romaner has led Helping Hands for the Homeless, a student-run nonprofit that a Yavneh student started four years ago.
