Avonworth High School's Lydija Amayo has a senior project that is gaining ground and the word is spreading throughout the region.
Amayo has been named a Kidsburgh Hero for her project called The Beautiful Gift. She is collecting soccer gear for children in her family's native Peru. Her love of the game of soccer, which Peruvians call the beautiful game, inspired Amayo to help those who are not as fortunate as her.
