Shivani Mendiratta

Hi, my name is Shivani and I’m a rising junior at Newtown High School. I became a TAF intern to follow my passion and create a world in which discussions about brain health and illnesses can better take place. Through my involvement as an intern, I hope to decrease stigmatization and bring better awareness to our community. I’m working on designing a new education program for Newtown schools and increasing TAF’s social media presence. In the future, I’d like to go into law with a science degree. Biology interests me and I’m intrigued by the social justice side of litigation so combining the two would be perfect for me. In my free time I enjoy playing music, painting, and playing with my dog.
