A big award for a University of Toledo student in Perrysburg on Thursday.

Afreen Alvi, 23, was honored with the "Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy Award.”

Alvi helped to raise money and launch an organization to help women find their gifts in leadership.

"It's not about all of the awards it's about doing what you love to do,” she says.”If I'm passionate about my career then hopefully jobs and companies will look at me that way that if I'm passionate I will get things done.”

Alvi is part of the group "Women of Toledo," which provides coaching on UT's campus to girls and women who 15-to-26 years old.
