Trisha Sarma is a senior at South Brunswick High School and is honored to have the position of being an executive member for Asha for Education. She has been a part of this program since 2019. Trisha loves helping and caring for others which is why this program is so special to her. Asha for Education is about helping underprivileged girls in India receive an education. She is a girl who is fortunate enough to live in a country where her education is guaranteed. Furthermore, she feels it is unfair that some women in India do not have access to something as vital as education due to the sole reason of their gender. However, Trisha knows that this program helps open up educational opportunities that can change a girl’s life which is why she is so drawn to this program. In the past, she has hosted a Karaoke night in 2019 that helped raise funds for women’s education as well as volunteered, planned, and promoted various events. Asha for Education has helped Trisha enhance her leadership and communication skills as well as shown her how big of an impact a helping hand can make on someone’s life.
Besides being a teen volunteer, Trisha loves to sing and act. She has always shown a great interest in music and started performing in many concerts as a solo singer from age of 4. She is a part of the High school Honors Concert Choir and Women’s Vocal Ensemble. Trisha was selected for Regional Choir in 2020 and State Choir 2022 and performed at NJPAC. She is the 2nd place winner of American Protégé International Music Talent competition for 2018 and 2021 and had the honor to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall. She has also been acting since she was 8 years old and enjoys participating in the school plays and musicals.
