Boby Yazdi

Boby is passionate about economic inequality, Math, and politics. He likes brainstorming ideas to help small businesses grow. His experience with working with Bendthecycle, a non-profit that aims to bend the cycle created by socio-economic disadvantage, made him realize there is much to be done in the education system itself. His goal for the year is to have an impact on the kids he'll be teaching in India and to learn a new language, culture, and everyday problems from his host community. He is particularly excited about bonding with his new family and Global Citizen Year fellows.
