To start the new year on a positive note, we decided to put the spotlight on seven inspiring individuals we believe are future leaders and newsmakers of the South Asian community. The featured seven are excelling remarkably in their respective fields and are effective role models for the young generation of our community. The passion and commitment they exhibit towards their professional goals, community, social causes, and personal activities deserve recognition and applause.
