Aspiring Programmer and Healthcare Professional, Founder of the Women in STEM Experience, Advocate of Computer Science Education for Females
My name is Riya Setty, and I am a junior attending Newark Charter High School. For the last few years, I have been an advocate for females in computer science, as there is currently a deficiency of women in STEM related fields. To do this, I have run summer camps, formed an engaging computer science curriculum for middle schoolers, and created a club called the Women in STEM Experience. I ultimately want to act as a mentor for younger students within my community, and encourage them pursue whatever area of interest they desire no matter the demographic. In my free time, I like to read, play the piano, and play lacrosse.
