Good going, Akshat! Doing what you do is so essential to helping move our community in the right directions. My hat off to you. And thanks Malea for writing this profile.

What a great young man - he and others like him - are our hope for the future. We all need to consider our impact on future generations, and work to save the environment for our children and grandchildren ... and Akshat is ahead of us all. Thank you for your action and example!
