Tech Head: Simarya Ahuja

Hi! My name’s Simarya Ahuja, and I’m a freshman at Saratoga High School. I’ve had a passion for singing ever since I was two or three years old, and it’s one of my favorite ways to express myself. I’ve been performing since elementary school, and I love it because it brings me joy to see the smiles on people’s faces whenever I sing. I’ve done two singing competitions, and I made it as far as the semifinals in both of them. I joined Singing for Smiles because of my love for singing and performing, and I’m super excited to be part of it. Outside of singing, I like learning how to play pop songs on the piano and playing badminton with my family.
