Coming of age in Minneapolis, Fardosa Hassan dived with enthusiasm into any community-service opportunity that contributed to helping society and improving the city.
The mere mention of Washburn High School in Minneapolis reminds Hassan of a list of activities and community services she got involved with before she graduated about four years ago.
"You have to give back to your community," Hassan said. "Some people don't have the opportunities I had. I feel like I owe them a lot."
