DiscoverSTEM Student Manish Rangan Selected among 18 Indian American Achievers under 18

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi felicitates 18 Indian American Achievers under 18 in a grand ceremony.



“You are the greatest export of India, the fastest growing active minority and the most prosperous community in America,” said US Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi at the Global Eye Magazine’s event to honor ‘18 Under 18’ achievers from across the country.

The event was held on September 24, on Day 2 of the curtain raiser for the GSA India@75 Expo 2022 USA scheduled to be held December 15-17 , 2022 at Sheraton Lisle, Naperville.

He said the Indian diaspora is a bridge between the United States of India. “We have to remember India is becoming bigger, and bringing bigger investors to the US. I will make sure there is more investment in my own congressional district. We have to work together to make US-India relationship prosper, and make the world a better place.”

Talking to indica on the sidelines of the event, Krishnamoorthi said, “India has arrived, and these children are the best indication of how Indian-origin community members are making a difference around the world.” He said he is working on a bill for documented dreamers, and said it will hopefully get through.

Community leader and chief organizer Dr. Vijay Prabhakar told Indica that he wants to make ‘18 under 18’ an annual award.

This is the list of the 18 awardees:

Aarya Rajesh
Abhra Ghosh
Advaith Srikanth
Arul Kolla
Arushi Kashyap
Arya Babu
Farah Rahman
Karthik Rajaram
