At school, Sanjna is also a member of CSF (California Scholarship Federation). Outside of school, Sanjna is an active participant in her community. She volunteers as a youth robotics mentor as a part of FLL (FIRST LEGO League) at her previous middle school. Additionally, Sanjna has been a Girl Scout for 8 years. As assistant troop leader for the last two years, she teaches young girls about teamwork, leadership, and critical thinking. She also helps lead community service projects, such as raising money and decorating a local homeless shelter during the holiday season.
 
Sanjna was also elected from her class as First Delegate for ALA Girls State (a prestigious leadership program that teaches students about politics) where she was able to further develop her interest in government. Sanjna is able to express her creative side through art. This past year, she self-studied for AP Drawing where she created a portfolio of 10 works. In her free time, Sanjna enjoys experimenting with other art forms such as videography and photography.
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.
