Saya Gala 2017! Posted on 25 Sep 11:18

South Asian Youth Action (SAYA) brings together youth from a diverse group of countries in South Asia with the mission of creating a "strong sense of belonging" and providing these young people with an academic, professional and personal foundation to grow.  On Saturday night at Chelsea Piers, as Saya celebrated 20 years of amazing programming, I had the pleasure of hearing some real life success stories. It was a beautiful night celebrating SAYA's work and honoring some amazing South Asian leaders, including my favorite, the filmmaker Mira Nair.

A perfect match! My Holi Earrings I wore to the gala and a beautiful picture created by the women of SAYA.
