Miss A Columnist

Samita Dutta is a San Francisco Charity Correspondent for Miss A. Her hometown is near Sacramento, California, and she is a sophomore at UC Berkeley with a passion for service. In high school, she conducted outreach for various causes, and she currently volunteers at the UC Berkeley Student Legal Clinic, where she gives free options to clients who have legal problems. One of her life goals is to continually help the environment. She led her high school’s recycling program for two years and led events to help clean up waste in her community. Also, she always makes sure the lights are off when she exits a room. Samita’s passion for service is coupled by her interest in journalism; in her hometown, she wrote for her local newspapers, and in college she served as the Blog Editor of UC Berkeley’s Hindu Student Council. She hopes to (possibly) be an attorney someday, as she likes to debate for justice. In her free time, she likes to try exotic foods, hang out with friends, listen to music, write in her journal, and travel just about anywhere. Her favorite activity is hanging out with her large family.

As an added benefit, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training provides running preparation from certified coaches and training clinics for runners who fundraise for the cause. Training is open to everyone, from novices to professional athletes, and the fastest women within each age group will be rewarded for their accomplishments. Everyone participating is required to finish the race with (at least) a fifteen minute mile time.

The run will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest health agency devoted to treating blood cancers. Their mission is to find a cure for blood cancers. Partnering with LLS, the Team in Training program has raised $1.4 billion for LLS’s research. Nike has partnered with LLS since 2004, and through the runs, has raised over 147 million dollars for LLS.
