Grade: Senior in Memphis, Tennessee
History with Roots & Shoots: One year with Roots & Shoots
Ayushi is a senior from Memphis, Tennessee. This is her first year on the National Youth Leadership Council. Ayushi’s favorite Roots & Shoots project is ConservACTION, a virtual space dedicated to highlighting the intersections of the creative arts and the environmental movement. This is her favorite project because it combines two of her great passions while connecting her to others with the same interests. Ayushi believes that art and dance can go far beyond words when it comes to expressing ideas and concerns regarding global issues and she appreciates seeing the perspective of others through their work. When she’s not working as a member of the Environmental Club Leadership Team, Ayushi can be found practicing with the Memphis Youth Ballet.
