With a trip to Disneyland out of the picture due to the pandemic, a 10-year-old from Glendale, California decided to use her hard-earned money for the trip to feed doctors and nurses, instead.

Alique Krikorian says she was first inspired to help after watching a Hollywood comedian.

"One evening I was watching TV with my family. I saw that Kevin Hart was donating hamburgers to a local hospital," explains the pre-teen. "So, I told my dad... I can do that as well."

Alique picked her favorite burger place, Mix and Match Burgers in Glendale, to purchase the meals. 

Alique's father, Shant, says on her birthday, he and the owner of Mix and Match Burgers delivered one-hundred cheese and veggie burgers, chips and drinks to the hard-working nurses and doctors. 

Shant says he couldn't be more proud of his daughter. "Her personality is always 'put others first' and 'try to help out.' And, be a role model to her friends and sister. I am very humbled and grateful of her nice gesture to do such a thing."

Speaking of her sister, the 10-year-old requested one last thing before we ended the interview.

"Can I just give a shout-out?" asks Alique. 

"Yeah, of course," I respond.

"To my sister, happy 13th birthday! I love you! I hope thirteen wishes treat you well!" exclaims Alique. 

Always thinking of others. 

We are honoring Alique Krikorian as our KNX Hero of the Week!
