Akhina considers her Bharathanatyam Arangetram to be her greatest achievement, a test of perseverance that was over a decade in the making. Akhinas mastery of this ancient Indian art is indicative of her strong portrayal of inner beauty, emotion, and thought. This has been emphasized in everything she does from school, to work, to her daily interaction with both family and friends.

Having completed multiple placements in private and publicly funded daycares, she is well on the way to fulfilling these desires!
