About the Author

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I want to thank you for checking out my work!

My name is Phanisree (puh-nish-ree) Akshinthala. I am a student who firmly believes in the power of student voice, hence why I established this blog – to amplify my voice. This blog is a platform where I will be sharing my thoughts, short stories, as well as book reviews.

I am no professional writer or grammar wizard, but I’ve been writing since I was very young and consider words the greatest gift to humankind. This is why I have been speaking publicly and writing for more than 6 years about: mindfulness, mental health, student voice, leadership, ect.

Some of my hobbies include: curling up in a corner at a local Barnes & Noble (or library) and reading, writing (clearly), meeting new people (and making new friends), spending time outdoors, traveling, spending time with friends and family, deep and intellectually engaging conversations, challenges, art, and much more!

Thank you for getting to know me and I hope you join me on my journey in sharing my voice. Feel free to comment on my posts or reach out to me. Happy reading!
