Raka is a senior at Lynbrook High School and plans to study computer science related majors such as Data Science and Systems Engineering in college. Her favorite subjects are math and economics, and she is excited about the intersection between business and technology. Raka attended the Penn Management & Technology Summer Institute this previous summer to learn more in-depth about that intersection to create an MVP and go-to-market plan of an original venture idea. In addition to learning about and working with technology, she would like to make a difference through her work. Her technical accomplishments include winning at the Synopsys Science Fair twice (2015, 2017), participating in the California State Science Fair, and attending the COSMOS program in 2018 to work on real-world coding applications in probability and statistics. Raka enjoys oil-painting, playing volleyball, volunteering, and is an active member of her school’s Mock Trial and FBLA teams.
