"I like adventures, and I’m going to find some."

Now in her final year at SCHS, Anjali has spent her six years in SLI coming into her own as a bright, assertive and compassionate leader who has learned to care deeply about the world and those around her. Anjali always looks to push herself out of her comfort zone, having successfully taken a hefty eighteen AP/Honors classes over the course of her academic career. Anjali was also heavily involved with Learning by Giving’s first-ever high school cohort, during which she served on the writing committee, managed all communications with non-profit organizations, and helped facilitate class decisions.
Outside of school, Anjali is busy with several clubs and projects, including Youth Activists, GAINS, Girls Who Code, Basic IT Club, and the Teen Tech Help Clinic at Santa Clara Central Library. Anjali is currently Sponsorship Director for PixelHacks IV, the Bay Area’s first all-female high school hackathon dedicated to empowering women in technology and promoting diversity in the ever-growing field of modern computing. She also teaches part-time at a Kumon center, where she enjoys working with students of all ages and abilities to determine learning goals, optimize study plans, and strive towards fundamental milestones.
Anjali has been on Santa Clara’s varsity tennis team for the past three years, serving as captain during her final season. In her free time, you can find Anjali hitting around on the courts, going on new adventures with her friends, binging Parks and Rec for the millionth time, and finding new coffee shops to study at.
