I want make a difference, especially during a crisis like this. I believe that we can pull through this crisis, if we all work together.

Ansh Tripathi

Co-founder, Chief Financial Officer

One thing that motivates me to work for Break the Outbreak is the idea of how impactful our work is to our community. It’s become well known that a lack of proper protection can make one susceptible to the virus and knowing that we are able to protect the essential food suppliers in our community is more than just a feeling of relief.

Sam Zhou

Executive Director of Sacramento Area, Director of Roseville chapter

The purpose of this operation caught my attention. There are many restaurants and local grocery stores that were hit hard during this pandemic. I would like to help them through these hard times and contribute to society. It would be nice to see people enjoying their lives once again rather than being tense towards their surroundings. Board Of Directors, organizational board

Tanish Kumar

Associate Founder, Chief Legal Officer

As a cross country runner and an athlete, losing access to my team was a huge loss for me when lockdown started. I needed something to fill that void and after ordering takeout from a restaurant with no masks, I realized what I could do to help. Being partnered with several other like minded students has allowed me to do my part in this pandemic and provide safety to places where there was previously none. Board Of Directors, organizational board

Nephi Calladine

Associate Founder, Chief Creative Officer

What motivates me to participate in this operation? Well the best motivator for me is seeing the smiles on others, knowing that I’ve made their day. That’s the best feeling. To help one another is very important to our society. We will be nowhere without it. This is why I’m here, this is why I have joined this operation. To help the cause.

my city through the COVID-19 pandemic. I love Birmingham and have grown up here all my life and have seen it change and grow into the amazing city it is! I am an extremely relational person and believe that this student-led organization can touch many people in the community and be a light for those during this difficult time.

I can’t wait to make a change in my community and in the world by joining BTOB as our LI Chapter Director!

Arnav Dixit

Director of San Jose Chapter

I chose to start a BTO branch in San Jose as it appealed to me that local businesses in my community were experiencing difficulties to assist customers when reopening during this pandemic. I have an innate passion for assisting the community and always seek to step up as a leader to help out. The situation we’ve come across with COVID 19 exclusively invites the collaboration of the youth to step up, lead, and serve the community.

Prahalad Chari

I am really interested in helping out the community in these troubling times. As students, we also have a lot of free time on our hands due to the pandemic so it is a great idea to put that time towards something useful that people can actually benefit from.

Saumya Kumar

Even though Massachusetts is beginning to flatten the curve, we still have over 100K cases and we have more than many other states. It’s important to prevent another spike in cases and there are many people in the state who don’t have access to supplies. It is essential for our generation to help those in need.

Kyla Ilkay

I look forward to working with all of you!

Aarush Kumar

Director of Hillsborough Chapter

 I heard about this non-profit through RMS, which is a research program I previously applied to. The reason why  I was so interested in joining was due to the current situation in the world today. Overall, there are hundreds of thousands of people putting their life on the line to protect everyone around them, and with the help of organizations as such can increase the chances of life going back to normal sooner.

Ryann Chatfield

I want to be able to help those who have continued serving during this hectic time and play my part alongside my peers.

Meera Hatangadi

Director of Irvine Chapter

As COVID-19 continues to plague the entire world, we find ourselves in situations where small businesses, senior homes, organizations, and even households do not have the resources that they need to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. I decided to start a local chapter of BTOB because I wanted to be a part of the initiative that aids those who are adversely affected by the pandemic and make their lives as easy as they can be during these hard times.

Esha Iftikhar

Co-Director of Queens Chapter

I wanted to join BTOB because my family has been personally affected by COVID-19. Many other people of color and minorities have also been disproportionately and negatively impacted by the effects of the pandemic due to not having enough resources provided to them during the pandemic and even before.

Alekya Mallampalli

Chapter Director of Dupage County

I want to be a part of BTOB because I want to help the small and local businesses in my community during the pandemic. With the increase in people disregarding the seriousness of the pandemic, I wish to help those who are serving the community, small businesses, and lower-income neighborhoods to help them stay safe in these unprecedented times. If volunteering at the community level is increased, which I strive to accomplish with my team, we can improve the health of those who are affected the most.

Karthik Kumar

Director of Aurora Chapter

I joined Break the Outbreak because I wanted to make an impact on my community, especially in these tough times. I felt so powerless when the pandemic hit and I felt like as a young person there was nothing I could do. When I found Break the Outbreak I knew this would be a  way to actually make an impact in my community and beyond.

Krystal Cortez

Palak Guleria

Advisory Board Member

Once every month my friends and I would walk to a local boba tea shop after school and spend hours being loud, eating delicious food like popcorn chicken and ice cream, and making special memories. This quarantine made me realize I’ll have those experiences forever but the shop might not. I want to help them and others to survive this crisis and stay open so I can come back with my friends and make even more memories.
