TRUMBULL—Animal lover and St. Catherine of Siena 8th grader Mika’il Naqvi and his younger brother and future SCSS student, Ayaan, are entrepreneurs in the making.
After their beloved dogs had knocked one too many Christmas ornaments off of the family Christmas tree, the boys put their heads together to invent the Ornament Anchor.
The boys have been featured on QVC, Good Morning America, and the Today Show, sharing their invention and bringing awareness to animal shelters and the overwhelming need to support them.
This year, after donating a portion of their profits to animal charities, the boys were selected by the North Shore Animal League to be Student Ambassadors.
SCSS was the first school to partner with them to execute the grassroots project that they developed.
Together with their mother, Mrs. Amanda Naqvi, they are reaching out to other schools in the Diocese to hope that those schools can be a part of their movement and be Shelter Heroes.
