The CSA is extremely happy to announce this year’s recipient of our CSA Award: Rhea Bhalla! Rhea Bhalla is a first-year student at the University of Manitoba and a person who stutters. Rhea is an exceptional volunteer with the CSA who founded (at the age of 14 no less) and continues to lead the CSA Calgary Support Group. In addition, she also leads the CSA Online Youth Support Group and is active with the Family and Youth Programming at our CSA Conferences. Rhea is passionate about disability advocacy and supports the stuttering community through volunteering. On behalf of the CSA Board of Directors, it is our honour to offer this award to a most deserving Rhea Bhalla.
Because of donations, we are able to continue offering our annual CSA Award of $500 for post-secondary students who stutter who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents! It is critical that we support our youth and we are grateful to be able to do so! Look for the announcement welcoming CSA 2024 Award applications this coming spring!
