Amiya: the world changer

People, who have a desire to change their world and then do it, inspired me. Most of these people are older and have lived their lifetime working towards this goal. Recently I have come across some of these very people, however they are not old, they are not even teenagers! But they are changing their world.

This drawing is the vision young Amiya had when she was 8 years old. She woke her mom up in the middle of the night to tell her about her a vision for a mobile dance academy that would take dance into the poorest areas of her city, offering lessons at a discounted price.  She not only wanted to spread her love of dance but fight off childhood obesity.

This is the reality.  Amiya’s vision is with the help of her mother and many other supporters has turned into a business that has earned enough money to pay off the original debt of the bus and is continuing to provide dance lessons throughout the Detroit area!
