Virginia Chapter Leader

Ananya Gourishetty

Hey! My name is Ananya Gourishetty and I am 16 years old and am currently a Junior at Henrico High School, and apart of the International Baccalaureate program. I am extremely passionate about the world of science and everything that goes on behind medical advancements. My work with the community is something I cherish very much. I was recently nominated as a candidate for the 2020 students of the year campaign through LLS; which is a blood cancer society and with holding fundraisers, contacting local companies and sharing awareness I was able to raise about $8000 in 7 weeks.

My love and interest for science bleeds into my education; I have recently completed an earth science course sponsored by NASA; and am currently working towards solving a mission simulation. The medical field is something that fascinates me to a very high extent which is why this past summer I spent 1 weeks shadowing med students at VCU; through this experience I gained knowledge of medical procedures and aspects of neuroscience. My ultimate goal in terms of my events which I plan on carrying out in my event is to combine science with technology and connecting them with how it can be used in the future.”
