Mumbai: The American Center here has announced winners of the `First Citizen` contest organised by it to honour the visit of President Obama to India, through its Facebook Fan page in recent weeks.

The first place winners are Alzeyne Dehnugara, nominator, and Chandni Parekh, social psychologist and educator based in Mumbai.

"During President Obama`s recent trip to India, he directly asked youth at a student interaction how each of them wanted to make the world a better place. The American Center is proud to highlight, through the `First Citizen` contest, the good work that many young people in communities across western India are already doing," American Center Director Anne Grimes said.

Parekh contributes through her work as a social psychologist, teacher, workshop facilitator, and NGO consultant.
