RATHI RAJA

Chief Game Dreamer

 

She believes that the modern era requires a much deeper effort in building Communication, Collaboration and Creation skills by youth and adults. This in turn leads to a stronger personal expression and confidence. Dreaming of games gives her great joy as she brings a complex web of values, symbology, stories, and contemporary issues to the tabletop. Her plate is usually overflowing like a giant bowl of spaghetti and it is a miracle that anything actually gets done.

MADHU ALLU

Chief Of All Other Stuff

 

She approaches life with a sense of triviality but certainly takes her roles and responsibilities seriously. Believing that everyone is blessed with a set of talents, she harnesses such gifted potential from everyone in the GFS Factory from the Oompa-Loompas to the Minions. As a co-conspirator at the center of the organization she brings focus and discipline to the decision and creative process with a much needed bushel of humor and fun. Creativity and humor tango together in her

I believe that every individual deserves the right to express themself, and my goal is to actively advocate for the prioritization of South Asian mental health. I joined Games for Seva based on its mission to foster collaboration and creation among adults and youth. Through this group, I’ve been introduced to the world of game design as a means to express Hindu values in digestible ways. This association has taught me how to work well in a team full of distinct personalities, as we work interdependently to bring about the best in each other. These skills provided me with the resources to become a better mental health advocate, writer, and public speaker. Beyond my passion project, I love Games for Seva due to its foundation in service as it has allowed me to feel more connected with my culture, which made my teamwork and game-designing skills more versatile and collaborative. Personally, I think I have been able to augment my leadership, creativity, and entrepreneurial skills, through public speaking exercises that have pushed me out of my comfort zone. Each member of this group provides a diverse perspective that makes the end product of our projects more enriching and valuable. Joining GFS has been one of my best decisions, and I am so grateful to the individuals, who have become some of my good friends and mentors, for providing me with opportunities truly like no other. Games for Seva has converted me from a consumer to a meaningful contributor.

I am fortunate to have been involved with Games for Seva since its early stages and to have grown alongside it. I attribute much of the person I am today to Rathi Aunty and Madhu Aunty’s eclectic vision, the unique opportunities it has afforded me, and their thoughtful mentorship. From ideating about how to apply ancient wisdom to contemporary issues, to working in teams full of unique and big personalities, to pitching our games to diverse audiences, I began building invaluable skills for a dynamic future as a young high school student through Games for Seva. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue contributing to GFS and to help it grow into the future as a college student eagerly engaging with new ideas and platforms. I am especially enthusiastic about the Prithvi ~ Mother Earth initiative and Games for Seva’s new focus on ecological thinking and living. Our ‘Travel with a Purpose’ trips in particular have been life-changing in making sustainability a focus in my daily life and all of my endeavors. I am excited to continue learning and growing with Games for Seva, and to see how it evolves into the future.

I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to be involved in Games for Seva/GVLP because it aligns with my values. Giving back in any form is an important practice we must adopt to be able to achieve a sustainable world, and GFS has allowed me to strive towards that goal. Rathi and Madhu Aunty make it so easy to get involved in any way you can; no matter if you have experience working in a volunteer organization or if it is your first time, you are guaranteed to grow as a person. It is because of this organization that I am the person I am today, someone who values respect, responsibility, and collaboration, while trying to improve myself in other areas of life too. I helped create the Chariots of Fate game and I was a game tester for multiple games such as Ganga River Rescue and Eclipse. I wanted to help Rathi Aunty even after I graduated high school because I believe in Game For Seva’s mission to educate the youth and I hope to improve even more as a person in the process.
