IT TAKES A SINGLE STORY OF SUCCESS
TO INSPIRE A LIFETIME
OF HARD WORK
SAAPS seeks to inspire students of all backgrounds to enter careers in public service by creating an affirming space where they can see and hear from American public servants of South Asian descent who have overcome various barriers to galvanize positive change in the fields of government, politics, law, and media.
The fundamental vision of Shakti is to create and sustain a platform for the unfettered expression of South Asian American civic thought. Shakti strives to further discourse by providing a platform for writers to freely explore topics related to the South Asian experience within the broader framework of civic engagement. In doing so, it hopes to build upon the rising political energy of South Asian Americans across the nation.
