Her hands and feet move gracefully
Like delicate little rose petals
Inscribed with the gifts of ancient India
Her prominent smile exposing her joy…

(C) Ray Mata PhotographyGowri is a Bharathanatyam (Indian Classical Dance) dancer from the Natya Anjali School of Indian Dance.  She loves dancing, singing, drawing, painting, and writing.

In the future, Gowri plans to become a pediatrician and continue to participate in her many hobbies.
