Abdiraqib Hersi of Beaverton HS in Beaverton, OR, or Abdi as he is known, is a true Silent Servant. Abdi has quietly volunteered hundreds of hours throughout his entire high school years building houses for Habitat for Humanity. Abdi’s story, and that of his entire family, is an excellent example of how we can experience the satisfaction of personal fulfillment that comes from serving others, and how Habitat for Humanity changes lives.
Abdi’s family lives in a Habitat for Humanity house. And this is how he and his younger siblings first learned the value of selflessly serving others. As a result, he began to volunteer countless hours of his own time over the years… building homes for others. Abdi is also involved in basketball and plays for a club team. He hopes to attend a Jr. College or Community College where he can continue to play.
