Samyukta is committed to driving change within and beyond the Roots & Shoots community.

Samyukta is helping to build up the Roots & Shoots Atlanta Basecamp, a vibrant hub of R&S activity.

She helps develop local initiatives and mentors younger students in her community. Beyond Roots & Shoots, Samyukta actively serves her community through gardening, donation drives, and writing letters to armed service members. She is also involved in undergraduate research and various leadership roles on campus and within her faith organization.

Samyukta’s advice to other young changemakers is to “start small” and collaborate with like-minded individuals, emphasizing the importance of collective impact. “I strive to emulate Jane’s compassion and action in all that I do,” she says.
