Innovative, Open-minded, Dependable

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

At Santa Clara High School, she is the co-president of KAST (Kids Are Scientists Too) and vice president of Girls Who Code.

Outside of school, Ramya is passionate about teaching and education. She has volunteered at the Computer History Museum since freshman year, where she has given family tours and led gallery activities. Ramya has also helped plan and fundraise for the Teen Takeover event, moderated a panel with Dr. Andrea Goldsmith, and is currently creating content about the role of technology in the 2020 presidential election. Last summer, she also volunteered as a teaching fellow at Breakthrough Collaborative, where she taught first-generation 7th grade students biology.

In her free time, Ramya loves playing the piano and reading.
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.
