Creative, Curious, Imaginative
“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
In addition to participating in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute since 7th grade, Rishith has witnessed a lot of personal growth in his own life. Over the years, he has discovered that he enjoys studying and sharing topics and fields that provide hope for the future, whether for humanity as a whole or for himself personally.
From this affinity, he can trace his interest in technology, engineering, mechanical history, and science fiction writing; and his growth in public speaking skills. His hobbies include drawing, video games, and backpacking. While he loves entertaining many aspirations and hopes, he has yet to settle on a specific design for his future. He does know that regardless of what happens, he will work to make it the best that it can be.
