“This summer served as an opportunity for me to reinvent myself, and I seized it without hesitation. This goes without being said, but the effect of the pandemic was monumental on all of us, especially as a high school senior ready to embark on an exciting new chapter of my life. For me it created a chance to slow down, pause, and reflect on what I actually value in life. The political and social climate of the past year inspired a sense of duty in me, prompting me to open Antiracelet to actively support the Black Lives Matter cause through the application of my own skills and hobbies. In light of recent events in the Black community, I have felt torn and shaken from the clear racial injustice and prejudice shown in everyday life. I attended protests to support the movement but wanted to contribute in a more impactful and direct way. I realized what I was doing wasn’t enough. So, I took my passion to the next level. I started a handmade glass bead and organic thread jewelry account, antiracelet, on Instagram to help me achieve my goal. By combining my skills in craftsmanship and my urgency to actively stand against racial oppression and the dehumanization of Blacks in America, I have created a brand with the promise to send 50% of proceeds to the Autistic People of Color Fund. The charity I chose to donate antiracelet proceeds to is representative of personal experiences and specific causes that are close to my heart. As an active volunteer for a local Down syndrome Achievement Center and President of the Youth Board at GiGi’s Playhouse, the Autistic POC Fund stood apart for me and truly spoke to my heart. This is my way and effort to fight against the deprivation of my community’s human rights. The BLM movement inspired me to support people of color in my community in order to help fight systemic disadvantages”-Rhythm Bhatia
