Nysa Doshi, Class 2, Podar International School (IB), Mumbai

Bright Sparks Awards 2023

Meet Nysa Doshi, a seven-year-old author and entrepreneur whose journey to success started when she was just five years old. Nysa is a self-taught hula hooper and her perseverance and resolve are evident in the fact that she picked up the skill in just four days. Her love of hula hooping inspired her to break the world record for the fastest spinning hula hooper in just one minute—quite an accomplishment for a young person.

Motivated by her achievements, Nysa started a new journey—teaching. Nysa began with a small group of students from her community, but her contagious energy and skill as a teacher soon attracted more. Though some were sceptical, Nysa disproved her critics by seeing her students thriving under her tutelage, taking home awards and building self-confidence.

Today, with over 200 students and two other trainers who were also formerly her students, Nysa runs a successful hula hoop academy called Nysa Huletics. Nysa balances classes and school with unwavering dedication, travelling all over Mumbai to share her knowledge and delight with eager students.

In addition to running her academy, Nysa is an avid writer; she is the author of three books— ‘The Zooming Rocket’, ‘Power of Practise’ and ‘Cute Stories with Moral’. Nysa has encountered many obstacles in her journey, from other’s lack of belief in her skills to more practical difficulties, but she has persevered in her mission to use hula hooping to empower people and spread happiness and health. By sharing her successes, Nysa wants to encourage people to believe in themselves and never give up on their dreams. She is an inspiration to everyone who meets her and reflects a spirit of contagious optimism and unwavering determination.

She finds the greatest joy in knowing that she can make people happy simply by doing what she loves.

To Tiya, being a Bright Spark means beaming with joy and illuminating everyone she meets. She has learned important lessons from music about tenacity, devotion and the strength of melody in unison. Her path has involved not only finding personal fulfilment, but also encouraging people around her to follow their own ambitions without letting age hold them back. Through this journey, she has also learned that anything is achievable with enough effort.

Tiya is appreciative of every challenge she has faced, every insight she has gained and every individual whose life she has impacted.  She has lofty goals and an unwavering love of music and she can’t wait to see where her musical journey will lead her. Until then, Tiya intends to keep using music’s power to spread joy and have a positive influence on the world.

Kiyansh Abhijit Shaha, Class 4, Vidyashilp Academy, Bengaluru

Kiyansh Abhijit Shaha is a young person of remarkable intelligence and curiosity who has a deep interest in the environment and the natural world. At nine years old, he started a special journey on his YouTube channel, called ‘Tree Talk with Kiyansh’, to help kids get more connected to the natural world, especially trees. He committed himself to researching and filming six common trees in Bengaluru with the help of his parents, making a movie about each one. He also made a few more films featuring fascinating trees, including some of Bengaluru’s oldest trees and trees that bloom profusely in the summer.

Kiyansh spent that year investigating the lives of the banyan, peepal, tamarind, gulmohar, jamun and pink pois trees on the weekends, taking a complete break from screens and controllers. He travelled to various places and noted the development, evolution and distinctive features of the trees. He painstakingly recorded his discoveries and disseminated them via entertaining and educational videos on his YouTube channel. Through his videos, Kiyansh wanted to make trees relatable and engaging for kids who are frequently engrossed in technology. His videos reveal intriguing details about trees, like the reason why the epiphyte banyan grows on other trees, sleeping tamarind leaves and the marriage of the peepal and neem trees at Ashwath Katte, Karnataka.

Kiyansh’s initiative received an overwhelmingly positive response. His videos were warmly received by his school and social circle, igniting discussions and increasing public awareness about the value of trees in urban settings. Many children have been motivated to grow in environmental consciousness and have a greater appreciation for nature thanks to Kiyansh’s passion and inventiveness.

Kiyansh is a self-driven person. Through his tree exploration project, he has gained invaluable knowledge about storytelling, patience, persistence and consistency. In addition to improving his own life, his love of trees and the outdoors has encouraged others to re-establish a connection with the natural world.

Kiyansh’s journey serves as a testament to the ability to positively impact the world through curiosity, creativity and perseverance. He has turned trees into superheroes and he hopes to encourage even more children to become ardent supporters of nature conservation by spreading his love of trees and the environment.

Isabel Shiju, Class 9, National Public School, Indiranagar, Bengaluru

The Selfless.Network project, led by the dynamic Isabel Shiju, aims to change policies, form partnerships and advocate for sustainable fashion. Isabel was able to present her project at the United Nations Headquarters after it was recognised at the UN Activate Impact Summit 2023, which was hosted by the 1M1B initiative. Isabel’s social impact project was one of the top 15 contenders out of 45 projects that were displayed.

Isabel took action after realising how drastically the fashion industry was affecting the environment. She advocated for reducing clothing consumption by using social media, conferences and presentations, reaching about 12,500 people in the process. Additionally, Selfless. Network collaborated with neighbourhood tailors to turn used denim jeans into aprons for street vendors and tote bags and launched a peer-to-peer donation platform that benefits 550 underprivileged children.

Isabel believes that awareness through the 3R framework–Reduce, Reuse and Repurpose–will definitely have an impact. Isabel has also created a ‘Unified Sustainability Tag’ through a campaign after realising how unclear the sustainability claims on clothing tags are. This tag will include details about production, composition, raw material source, sustainability and a net colour score. It will also exclude tags that contain inconsistent information. She is interacting with the Ministry of Textiles and Energy to push for its implementation, having gathered over 2,500 signatures.

As she considers her journey, Isabel recognises important lessons she has learned along the way. Her efforts have helped her recognise the significance of making the initial move and starting an action. They have also taught her to get over shyness and seize chances with courage, which results in productive interactions with stakeholders and brands. Last but not least, she has learnt to innovate through pain point identification, as demonstrated by the Unified Sustainability Tag campaign.

Isabel is driven to bring about positive change in the fashion industry by her love of fashion and her dedication to sustainability and looks forward to a time when ethical, sustainable and beautiful fashion prevails.

Parthivi Bhatia, Class 9, Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi

Parthivi Bhatia is an enthusiastic and hardworking student who is devoted to changing the world for the better. Her path to activism and social advocacy began in class 6, when she discovered her calling in promoting a number of causes near and dear to her—organ donation, the LGBTQ community, the intellectually and physically challenged, the educational rights of the underprivileged and the prevention of acid attacks. She has devoted her time to advancing social justice, encouraging inclusivity and aiding marginalised communities over the years. 

Parthivi’s important role as the school’s vice president, which she used to further her Flawless Flaws campaign, is at the forefront of her endeavours. This campaign, which is devoted to supporting victims of acid attacks, offers hope and empowerment to people who have faced unspeakable trauma. Parthivi works tirelessly to dispel stigmas, increase public awareness and give acid attack survivors the tools they need to succeed. 

Parthivi’s love of acting has given her one of the most significant platforms to raise awareness on the issue of acid attacks. Through her and her team’s captivating performances in plays and nukkad nataks, they have inspired positive change, meaningful conversations and empathy. Their play, ‘Acid Attack’, was even invited to the Rashtrapati Bhavan where the character she was portraying was seated in the audience right in front of her, allowing the audience to reflect deeply and feel the raw emotions of an acid attack survivor’s experiences. 

Parthivi’s efforts have had real impacts on lives, leading to the creation of job opportunities for acid attack survivors in the hospitality industry at The Lalit, New Delhi, and the Lemon Tree, Bengaluru. In addition, Parthivi has spearheaded significant programmes to assist victims of acid attacks, such as cultural festivals and podcasts. Her initiatives to educate and empower communities include #stopacidsale and Project Aalok, which she runs in partnership with the Atijeevan Foundation. In fact, President Draupadi Murmu attended the event at the Rashtrapati Bhavan where Parthivi’s team was invited by the Atijeevan Foundation to perform their play. 

Parthivi is also a gifted writer who uses her writing to explore and promote mental health issues. Her moving poems have touched many people, giving those who might feel ignored a voice and providing comfort and encouragement. Additionally, she has given her time and energy to a number of school clubs and events, such as the Student Council and the Interact Club, and has actively participated in programmes like ‘Sehpaathi’, which aims to educate underprivileged students. 

Parthivi’s comprehension of bravery and resilience has been enhanced by her close work with acid attack survivors. She has also improved her soft communication and interviewing abilities. Her experiences with survivors and her support of their rights have profoundly shaped her sense of purpose and empathy, leaving an enduring impression on her. 

While Parthivi has encountered doubt and faced many obstacles along the road, she is unwavering in her dedication to her cause.   Parthivi is adamant that every tiny action made to raise awareness and push for reform advances the larger objective of building a society that is more compassionate, inclusive and egalitarian. You can follow her campaign’s journey on Instagram at Flawlessfflaws.
