RTPians Got Talent: Featuring Teen Singer Ayushi Mohanty

We launched the RTPians Got Talent Feature to highlight the talented Adults, Youth and Kids in the RTP area. This is ChaiBuzz's way to encourage and inspire budding talent. Having role models in our life is very important. They influence what we do and how we turn out eventually.
Ayushi Mohanty is a 16 year old sophomore at Wakefield High School. She holds immense love for singing and dance. She received 5 years training from Shankar Mahadevan Hindustani vocal. Now she is learning American vocal from Mary Johnston Letellier. She has received several accolades at such a young age. Ayushi was the first runner up for Ms. North Carolina at the NAM North Carolina pageant and got first place for Ms. Photogenic. She also held 5th place in the NAM National pageant. She also actively works towards helping make the environment a better place through volunteering.
Ayushi is interested in pursuing a medical career and started working towards it by participating in two pre-college programs at Georgetown University:
  • Medical Research: Clinical Trials Resulting in Medical Discoveries
  • Becoming a Surgeon: Skills, Specialties, and Diseases
Here is Ayushi singing “Shayad Kabhi Na Keh Sakoon Main Tumko” song from "Love Aaj Kal 2". It's a challenging song, but she absolutely nailed it.
Encourage kids to learn any form of music - this is said to have a positive influence on cognitive, socio-emotional and brain development of children. Here is an interesting article on how Children’s brains develop faster with music training.
