Determined, Thoughtful, Responsible

“What you do makes a difference. And you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” 

–Jane Goodall



Having been in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (SLI) since 7th grade, Mindi has explored all the aspects of STEM in depth and has been able to find true passions and interests. Spending three years on FIRST Tech Challenge team AstroBruins, she has been able to dive deep and expand her mechanical, communication, and leadership skills. Through numerous community outreach events with her team, she has developed a love for community service and volunteer work. Mindi has a strong belief that small actions can leave a major impact on the world. Acting on this belief, she has become involved in the student body as a technology representative where she builds upon her video editing and problem-solving abilities to serve the school community. Mindi also enjoys spending her time on the school’s varsity badminton team and playing with her dog. She has a tremendous love for animals.

The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
