Akshara Akella

Hello! My name is Akshara, I’m 17 and a senior in high school.

I am a fun, loving person to be around, and I love to make others smile. I believe smiles and laughter are contagious, and I love spreading it whenever possible!

My family is my world. I live close to many of my cousins/extended family, and I cherish every moment I spend with them. I don’t know where I would be without their tremendous amount of support and unconditional love. Every moment I spend with them fills my heart with tremendous amounts of joy 🙂

I believe that everyone has a voice, and each voice can be used to make a difference. I want to use my voice to inspire and motivate others not only through my stories but through the stories of others as well. I wish to show that hardships are not roadblocks in a journey but rather stepping stones to reach higher.

Apart from school and work, I love to travel the world, visit new places, explore new cultures, and learn everything the world offers!

This is my journey. Thanks for joining me!


My personal posts share a wide variety of topics ranging from day-to-day routines and reflections to goals, and life lessons. Here, you can find posts that show everything from the highs to the lows of my life. I wish to show that both highs and lows are normal, and life is not only about celebrating the highs. I am a true believer in being authentic, so authentic, real content is what you will find!
