WINNER SPOTLIGHT

Meet Akshat

New Jersey

What started as a passion for speech and debate became a calling for Akshat to advocate for the less fortunate in his community. Akshat founded Music Shines Bright, a nonprofit focused on providing music therapy performances and fundraisers for senior citizens. Through his organization, he has mobilized over 750 student musicians to perform over 500 hours of music therapy and raised $12,000 dollars in support of senior citizens across five states.

IN AKSHAT’S OWN WORDS

“I realized I wanted to do more, beyond the speech and debate circuit, and use my voice to advocate for the less fortunate in my community — senior citizens.”
