Avik loves spending time with his family and listening to music, especially when he attends music therapy. He has cerebral palsy and although he does use words to communicate, his mom notes, “His eyes are his superpower. He draws people to him and appeals to the best version inside of each of us!”

Avik’s parents say they are proud of their 7-year-old because of his perseverance. Through their journey with Avik, any time they have felt down, they have been able to look into his beautiful eyes and realize that everything will be alright.

Avik’s parents hope visitors of the LOOK! Exhibit are able to experience what Avik’s family gets to experience being with him every day!
