Siya Verma

I am committed to cultivating diversity, equity, and inclusion in every community I engage with. Driven by a passion for mental health and championing underrepresented groups, I co-founded a non-profit consultancy. My endeavors range from establishing influential student roles to collaborating on healthcare initiatives. As an enthusiastic Research Assistant at Stanford’s Deliberative Democracy Lab, I analyze results from international Deliberative Polls and spearhead impactful projects, such as piloting a media literacy course in Nigeria. I have successfully advocated for youth representation and volunteered extensively. My academic interests encompass policy, politics, economics, and emerging fields, particularly web3 technologies and Artificial Intelligence. In my free time, you'll find me crafting unheard-of vegetarian dishes and vegan treats in the kitchen or fulfilling my role as a full-time older sister!

Verain Mahajan

Hi, I’m Verain. I love to bike, swim, walk, paint, and hold conversations. I have a passion for Taekwondo, in which I have a first-dan black belt. I am interested in sustainability and environmental protection I have a particular passion for reading about new green technology, as I hope to one day unveil a product of my own. When I go out for walks with my dog and for bike rides, I make sure to pick up trash. I would love to see the Earth, with all its natural beauty intact, conserved for future generations. Academically, I have recently begun taking a deeper dive into subjects like sociology and business. I love to make connections, personal or professional; meet new people; and learn new things. The only thing that can rival my love for conversation is my love for Bollywood; my favorite thing to do is chill with my friends and family and watch a movie.
