What makes Somika Jashni a Trailblazer?

With her heart of gold, Somika Jashni Singh’s done it all. School vice-captain, peer support leader, charity worker, dancer, singer, and performing arts mentor are just some of the many titles she can claim. While she is also a student from Liverpool Girls High School currently in the thick of doing her HSC, Somika Jashni has taken on some important duties around Liverpool and the Indo-Fjian communities in Sydney.

Somika Jashni received the Australian Defence Force 2020 Long Tan Youth Leadership & Teamwork Award. Her community work is equally awe-inspiring and formidable. For five years, she’s been working with United Fiji’s local charity partner, Yaadein Vision Fiji. Food drives, dinners, dance nights and stage performances are just some of the events she organises for the charity all for the cause of contributing relief efforts such as school supplies and feminine hygiene.

A member of the Indo-Fijian community herself, she is also a performer at these events and has an ongoing number of rehearsals for Indian dances and songs with the harmonium. You can bet she is a skilled dancer and musician because she also teaches the harmonium and dance styles including Bollywood, Bharatnatyam, classical and hip-hop to her 5-15 year old students.

More than that, she has worked her way to becoming a Committee Member of the NSW SSDS organisation and Junior Associate of the Shree Ram Krishna Temple and Homepride Hindu Centre in Austral.

Over at Liverpool Girls High School, Somika Jashni’s known as the school’s vice-captain. Though she is undoubtedly a natural social butterfly, becoming vice-captain upped the antes when it came to her leadership and communication skills. Other than maintaining great relationships with everyone at school, she has vigorously used her strong work ethic and collaborative and interpersonal skills to work towards her team’s common goal.

For all of that, Somika Jashni’s final school years haven’t been without its challenges. She had a tough start to Year 12 when her grandmother’s health deteriorated. With Somika Jashni and her grandmother’s bond being exceptionally close, her grandmother’s frequent hospital visits and passing was an incredibly difficult time for her. Though Somika Jashni entered each school day with a big smile, assessment deadlines crept up and forced her to stay up late to stay on top of her schoolwork.

Somika Jashni’s HSC experience has been both delightful and overwhelming. Her unwavering positive attitude means that she is doing the utmost best of her situation. But, what’s after school? Well, Somika Jashni wants to give back to the education sector and go into teaching.

‘a profession as a teacher is a rewarding role as it brings forth many opportunities…I wish to bridge learning gaps through sharing my love for teaching in order to be a positive steer for students to also appreciate the importance of education as well.’

From countless charity work, dancer, harmonium player, singer, and an inspiring vice-captain at Liverpool Girls High, she’s done more than enough to deserve the title of a 2022 Trailblazer winner.
