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.

First Annual San Francisco Sno Ball

Climate change has taken its toll in areas where snow was once common. Every winter, more snow is melted and fewer areas are available for snow sport activity. Looking for a way to help? Come out to the first annual Sno Ball event to benefit the Protect Our Winters organization!

The event will feature dancing, a hosted bar, a silent auction, special guest appearances, and a surprise DJ set! Guests will also dress for the event, with the theme of ‘Winter White Cocktail Attire,’ so make sure you come prepared!

The First Annual Sno Ball aims to raise awareness about global climate change and impacts on winter sport activities. All proceeds of the event are tax deductible and will benefit the Protect Our Winters organization.

Protect Our Winters was founded in 2007 by pro-snowboarder Jeremy Jones, who witnessed the first hand effect climate change in the mountains. The mission of the organization is “to engage and mobilize the winter sports community to lead the fight against climate change.” The organization centers its efforts on education initiatives, advocacy, and the support of community based projects. Since the its conception, Protect Our Winters has re-invested over $750,000 in initiatives that support its mission, educated thousands of young people, and garnered the support of celebrity athletes, making a considerable difference in the fight against climate change.
