El Cerrito Performing Arts Theatre
El Cerrito, CA
There’s no bigger rush for me than to visualize something and then see it come to life.
Laasya 2016 was a labor of love and commitment. Nine months of planning and preparation culminated in a exciting weekend of dance, music, and philanthropy. Throughout the process, I was blessed to have a supportive team: my co-director Ilakya, who was at times the only person who understood the craziness of my life; the Laasya board, which consisted of Cal undergrads who agreed to believe in our vision and put in the hard work of realizing it; my roommates and friends, who put up with my erratic work schedule and supported however they could; and my parents and extended family, who supported through phone call therapy and donations.
