Think kids today are spoiled? That they only care about themselves?
CNN Hero Yash Gupta says that’s far from the truth.
“I think there’s a misconception with our generation,” said Gupta, 17. “Many of my friends are doing things to improve their communities.
“Kids are passionate and can make a difference. It’s just a matter of finding out what you care about and focusing on that.”
For Gupta, it’s helping children see clearer. Since 2011, he has given out more than 9,500 pairs of donated eyeglasses through his nonprofit, Sight Learning.
