the importance of celebrating their cultures and passing down traditions through the children of these communities, she stressed the importance of teaching others. “With every holiday, we try to have an event where we can have our youth involved and know where their families come from. I think the youth is the key in making sure traditions and cultures are passed down. It is the duty of the adults to be involved and take lead when able.” Most importantly, Krishna urges the rest of the Tallahassee community to explore cultures and communities beyond their own, highlighting the importance of coming together to share in new experiences. “I hope to bring awareness to the Hindu culture more. I want to highlight the many traditions and events we hold here in Tallahassee. Everyone is welcomed to experience the events we hold, and I want to bring more awareness to that. For instance—one holiday called Navratri, which is celebrated every autumn through nine days of dancing and fasting. Our community gets together, wearing their best Indian outfits and dancing the night away to a live musical band. We encourage other communities to come enjoy these nine days of celebration. These nights bring on a tremendous amount of fun, laughter and memories that I think anyone would enjoy. Bringing awareness to cultural events as these will really bring the Hindu culture to light.”
