Jenny Wadhwa

Hi, my name is Jenny and I am a junior at Newtown High School. After 12/14, My sister and I founded a non-profit organization to raise money for our town by hosting 26 bake sales all around the nation. After that experience, I felt as though I needed to do more to prevent tragedies in the future and I was immediately drawn to The Avielle Foundation’s combination of science and change-making. Ever since I was little, I was fascinated by the brain and its role in shaping one’s reality. Being a TAF intern, I can explore this fascination while working to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others. My current project is shaping up to be a mental health training program for kids. Outside of the internship, I enjoy leading my Letters with Love organization, training to become an EMT, and traveling the world.
