During the COVID-19 Pandemic, many of us have faced challenges and had to adjust to our way of life. A group of people also adjusting to these changes are children and students. Children have had to miss their graduations and promotions, isolate from their friends and adapt to distance learning. This Wednesday, on LiveWire, we reach out to 14-year-old student and creator of the Write to Lead Program, Akshaj Mehta.
Akshaj has published 4 books and is believed to be the youngest Indian American Author. Any proceeds of his books have been donated to children’s charities and events he has done goes to benefit children’s charities. In his passion to encourage children to write he created a website called Write to Lead which creates a platform for young writers to tell stories, critique movies, write articles and be creative.
But even though Akshaj is a leader, he still has had to now “Distance Learn”, isolate from friends, and watch his friends miss their graduations and promotions. Askhaj with be giving us a student perspective of the COVID-19 Pandemic Experience and also talking about Writing Spree on his Write to Lead website for students to use time creatively during this pandemic.
