I have learnt Carnatic Music, an art form from South India, since the 6th grade. While I am no world-class performer, I have come to appreciate the meaning behind the lyrics and the focus required to control our breathing, regulate our postures, and recall the tune and/or words. I’ve realized that music is as much an exercise of the mind as it’s emotionally expressive.
As the co-founder and speaker coordinator of TEDxMasonHighSchool, I have led its growth from a simple idea to an event critical to uplifting diverse perspectives in Ohio’s largest public high school. While I have discovered that I’m NOT event planner material, I cherish the time I spend hearing and promoting others’ stories.
