Meet Our Team

We are working diligently to create as many meaningful legacy project booklets as possible. Currently, our team is small but both Bijou Basu and Hannah Nakatsuka are passionate about serving you and recording your story.

Bijou Basu: President, Founder

Bijou Basu founded the nonprofit during her first year of medical school. After her grandfather passed away, she came across a video recording she made in middle school where she interviewed her grandparents. While researching the intersection between story telling and palliative care, she learned about Dignity Therapy and decided to create this organization based on its principles.

Anjani Ludu: Director of Operations and Administration 

Anjani Ludu, even as a toddler, knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to helping others. Throughout high school and college she volunteered at Harborview Medical Center, a level 1 trauma hospital, where she listened to countless stories throughout all departments of the hospital. As an aspiring Public Health and Hospital Administrative masters student, she is beyond excited to join No Longer Voiceless and help families and communities have a physical legacy of their loved one for years to come.

Ashley D’Costa: Director of Finance

Ashley D’Costa rediscovered her fervor for healthcare after undergrad when she began work as a care manager in a senior assisted-living home. There, she has gained ample experience working with residents near end-of-life, specializing particularly in dementia care. Seeing the way in which chronic diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and ALS impacted the legacy of her own relatives too, she believes wholeheartedly in the mission of No Longer Voiceless, and is dedicated to contributing her skills to its success.
