Unsung heroes honored at 5th Annual Queens Impact Awards
TimesLedger Newspapers, once again recognized the people in Queens who make a difference behind the scenes.
These are the borough’s unsung heroes who volunteer and work outside the public eye, rescuing vulnerable residents and inspiring youngsters to reach for the gold ring against sometimes formidable odds.
All of our honorees share a remarkable motivation to help others.
At just 28 years old, Payal Aggarwal has dedicated most of her life to volunteer work and medicine.
Aggarwal, who grew up in Kew Gardens, earned her doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2015 and shortly after, began her residency at Brooklyn Hospital in pediatrics, where she plans to become a pediatric oncologist.
