Sanjna Srikanth, a young artist from Bengaluru has been raising money for charities by selling her paintings from the time she was just a teenager.
Her paintings have been displayed at the World Economic Forum, and, in 2014, she received the International Diana award from the British prime minister, an award that celebrated achievements by young people.
What makes Sanjna so remarkable is that she has achieved all things while living with the challenges that come with being diagnosed with autism.
