Radha describes her younger self as shy and unable to sing. Her Mustard Seed journey has been one of discovering her voice. Over the years her music teachers have not only taught her how to sing, but they’ve also instilled a sense of confidence. Radha’s grown so much that she’s now a soloist!
Radha credits Language Arts teacher, Ms. Decker, with unlocking both her speaking and writing voice. Analyzing perspectives from a book she’s recently read is a favorite writing task for Radha. She likes to dig into hidden meanings and uncover the author’s point of view. It helps her to refine her own ideas about the world. This skill was critical when Radha and her friend Stephanie crafted and presented their Service and Leadership Exhibition on gender inequality.
Next year Radha will focus on visual arts and graphic design at High Tech High School. She also hopes to study Italian and maybe even study in Italy one day.
