My name is Akshanaa Rathakrishnan.

I am a grade 11 French Immersion student; I fluently speak 3 languages English, French and Tamil.
At the age of 13, I obtained my first degree black belt in Taekwondo. I have been learning Thamil Carnatic Music for 11 years.

Currently I attend the Youth Leadership Program by the Centre for Leadership and Innovation (CFLI) and will be graduating in December of 2019. I have been selected as the Star Speaker at Milestone events amongst my class at numerous occasions and have won many times.

During my spare time I have co-facilitated other CFLI students and tutor French as well.

In November 2018, I have been selected as Durham Youth Councillor for Township of Uxbridge-Brock-Scugog. Where I will be representing the youth of the Durham Region.

Recently I took on a challenge of MC’ing the Thamil Thai Pongal event hosted by the Stouffville Tamil Multicultural Association in Tamil, this was a challenge but I enjoyed it very much. This was a great opportunity to connect with my roots and publicly speak tamil front of many Tamil Canadian within our community. And happy to report I received excellent feedback from the community.

My hobby is reading and playing scrabble with my family.

A quote that defines me, “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward by Martin Luther King Jr.
