Hello everyone! My name is Dhruva Lepakshi and I’m a freshman studying at Marlboro High School. During this school year, I have managed to get two honor rolls and I want to continue persevering with my academic honors throughout the school year. I’m an active participant in these school clubs, DECA, FBLA, and JSA. These clubs have given me the opportunity to interact with several people as well as improvising on my public speaking skills.
Theater club and Bollywood dancing classes were my forays into arts. Hip-hop has helped me relax under stressful circumstances and has made me interact more as a person. Whenever I freestyle in school, people usually get very excited and that gives me a positive boost for my own self-confidence. Nowadays, I have a passion for putting out all my songs on streaming platforms and eventually make an album with producers that will help and guide me.
My dream is to complete my master’s in business and be an independent entrepreneur, and with the governor’s award, I have gained a vision for how I would bring hip-hop and the impact it has had on me to the people around me and eventually the world.
