Harsh Madaik - President

Hi, my name is Harsh and I am a senior at UT. I really enjoy the Humanity First community and the variety of volunteering opportunities that we have. My favorite Humanity First memory is my first time volunteering at Posada Esperanza, a family refugee home in Austin where I met and mentored immigrant children from Central America.

Amulya Cherian - Vice President

Hi, my name is Amulya Cherian and I am a Junior neuroscience major. I love HF because of all of the friends I have made through this organization! My favorite HF memory was spending time with little kids at Posada Esparanza! Don’t worry – HF isn’t my only personality trait. I also enjoy eating cheese, spending time in the outdoors, and watching commentary videos about the downfall of influencers.

Mitali Elhence- Service Director

My name is Mitali Elhence and I’m a sophomore. I love how Humanity First gives back to the community and my favorite HF memory apart from the service events are socials such as when we played skribblio!

Annalaye Mercadel- Membership Director

My name is Annalaye Mercadel and I’m a second-year! I love the sense of community that our organization builds through service. My favorite HF memory would definitely have to be the Among Us social we had in the fall semester. It was a lot of fun and helped me feel closer to the other members early-on in the year.

Sara Mansoorshahi - Marketing Director

Hi! My name is Sara Mansoorshahi and I am a senior majoring in Neuroscience with a certificate in Spanish for Health Care Professionals. I joined Humanity First in Fall 2020 to get more active within the Austin community and to meet people with similar interests in community service. This year I am serving as the marketing director where I will help make graphics in order to promote Humanity First events. In my free time, I likes to hang out with my two dogs (Lucky and Olive) or bake!

Riya Shah - Public Relations Director

Hey everyone, my name is Riya Shah and I am the Public Relations director this year! I love being a part of Humanity First because of our hands-on service and our close knit community. My favorite HF memory was the 2020 End-of-Year Scavenger Hunt social, where I got to meet many of our team members in person for the first time. I am so excited for this year!
