Shreya Kalavur

As a member of the National Honors Society at school and a Youth Ambassador for the volunteering organization Ékam, giving back to the community has always been an essential to me. Taking the initiative to aid others at no cost always leaves me with a sense of fulfillment. Vision-Aid especially has been one of the non-profit organizations that has left a deep impression in not only my volunteering career, but my own personal life. I have participated in 2 Vision-Aid dance productions over the summers and each helped me grow indefinitely as not only a dancer, but as a person. Working with a large team and renowned mentors, I was able to improve my skills and make unforgettable friendships; however, more importantly, I sincerely enjoyed being able to put my own bharatanatyam skills to use to support an important cause.

Shreya wishes to support Vision-Aid through her Arangetram also to benefit those who cannot “see” the beauty of this artform.

As a Vision-Aid ambassador, Shreya has specifically requested all friends and family to not make any personal gifts to her. Instead, if you wish, you may make a donation in any amount of your choice to Vision-Aid, a 100% volunteer-run non-profit, where the funds are efficiently used to Enable, Educate and Empower visually impaired children and youth. Vision-Aid rehabilitates over 10,000 children and youth every year.
