Accent Academy is a sole proprietorship owned and operated by Reeya Deshpande a 16-year-old Indian-American business student and entrepreneur.
It may shock you to know that I lived in India for almost half of my life. While there, I took notice of the several plays I got to narrate and the presentations I was chosen to give as a result of my American accent. After coming back to America, I realized that our accent is one of the biggest reasons for Indian discrimination in the country. With the knowledge of several college classes and an intensive summer program hosted at Stanford University, I have created Accent Academy as an effort to reduce the subconscious biases against my community. Thank you for your support and kind words <3
