Krish Bahadur is currently in his sophomore year of high school at Lake Forest Academy. He is an avid student of engineering, entrepreneurship, and finance— a problem solver with academic interests in mathematics and 3-D modeling. Krish is also a Young Ambassador of the Sonia Shah Foundation which has built and runs the Sonia Shah Memorial School on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan educating young women. Krish amplifies the messaging for the foundation and fundraises for educational supplies and special projects on the grounds of the school such as playground equipment and renovating classrooms.
Krish founded Soul Shoe Project Chicago which provides winter boots, socks, hats, and gloves to homeless populations in the downtown area. As Chicago's weather is infamous for being windy and bitter cold, some of the most in-demand items at local shelters are socks and boots. Soul Shoe brings that warmth and basic needs to those without shelter. Through outreach to businesses and houses of worship, Krish and his team deliver to homeless camps and shelters three times per month.
