This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.

Have you ever wondered about the physical effects on the human body due to music? The toll each musical note takes upon each organ? What about the psychological effects of music? What does music do to people?

My name is Praharshitha Veeramraju and I am a senior attending Heritage High School in Frisco, TX. I am a philanthropist. I have organized two fundraisers raising money for both lupus and attaining physical therapy equipment for children in India. I am also very passionate about the art form of music. I play a classical Indian instrument, called veena, and I sing Carnatic music. I am a student aspiring to be a doctor in my future years. More specifically, I plan on being a neonatologist, as infants are where my true zeal lies. I am very thankful that I am able to present my two passions and the path they share.
