Ms. Vaishvi Shah
Achiever's Success Story
It’s never too early to start serving the society
Since early middle school, Vaishvi always saw a disparity in opportunities and academic resources as she compared developed countries with underprivileged societies. As someone who values science and technology, and has had exposure to it through a multitude of initiatives in the past, she truly wanted to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged individuals.
STEMatic Leaders was founded in May 2021 by Vaishvi Shah, who was then a grade nine student. It is a non-profit, international organization that aims to increase youth engagement in the multifaceted world of STEM through conferences, competitions, and innovative initiatives surpassing school resources and lessons. Currently a grade 11 student, Vaishvi has brought many accolades and successes to this organization, as the founder and president. STEMatic Leaders has had several large events and initiatives in this short time, garnering the participation of more than 100 youth worldwide, truly making an impact on their academic lives.
Vaishvi is also the Vice President of Work 2 Unify, another youth-led non-profit organization that focuses on philanthropy, fundraising, and volunteering. She works to make an impact through this role as she participates in and hosts multiple initiatives that improve the well-being of different demographics across the world. For example, Vaishvi has led volunteer and fundraising events that focus on fighting for gender equality, providing resources to underprivileged communities, increasing funds for local hospitals, and much more.
Her constant hard work and dedication to STEMatic Leaders and Work 2 Unify are driven by her vision to create a significant impact on the world; she hopes that both organizations continue to gain success in an effort to accomplish her lifelong mission.
