Dhiren Akkina


Vice President of Growth

“You must have a level of discontent to feel the urge to want to grow.”– Idowu Koyenikan

Going into his third year, Dhiren has always had a passion for HOSA Future Health Professionals and what it stood for. Over the years, he has come to realize the impact he may have on peers and colleagues. Experiencing the diversity and richness within HOSA has allowed Dhiren to truly accept himself as an individual. As your Vice President of Growth on the 2023-2024 State Officer Team, Dhiren hopes to play a pivotal role in driving the organization’s expansion, impact, and influence throughout the state. Through strategic initiatives, he hopes to cultivate and foster a new HOSA family where inclusivity is promoted and diversity is appreciated. Outside of HOSA, he spends his time on the tennis courts or at home binging shows. As a rising senior at Wayzata High School, Dhiren hopes to pursue a major in biochemistry on the pre-med track as he aspires to become an Anesthesiologist. As the year approaches, Dhiren hopes to embark on this new journey and leave a lasting impact as one of your state officers.
