Mayukha is an advocate for encouraging girls in STEM fields. She started a non-profit company, Girls Rock in Science and Math where she sparks passion in young girls for science and math. ​Mayukha Vadari is a senior at Redmond High School. She has been passionate about math and science since the fourth grade and has been participating in competitions, winning many awards, since then. By the time she reached high school, she realized a trend that girls were losing interest in math and science. Mayukha noticed this trend through direct experience with her classmates and friends, as well as observing at competitions. In order to combat this drop in interest, she formed Girls Rock in Science and Math (GRISM), a IRS-certified non-profit company, to encourage passion and excitement for math and science in girls and make them enthusiastic participants. GRISM currently has over 60 students in the program, and runs an annual competition, Girls Embrace Math & Science (GEMS), which had 250 participants last year. Mayukha also loves to play piano, learn various languages and browse Wikipedia in her free time. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
