Be Wise Initiative: Empowering students in STEM


Ohio State University senior and Olentangy Orange High School (OOHS) alumnus Ashwin Rajkumar started the Be Wise Initiative, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, back at OOHS in 2020 to inspire and facilitate the girls and boys of the next generation to develop a passion for STEM-based majors both here in the United States and internationally. Besides Rajkumar, Ohio State students Esha Sharma (CIO), Nikhitha Vellanki (CAO), Ashley Tarrant (COO), and Pranav Ingale (CMO) also lead the initiative. The initiative hosts afterschool programs at elementary schools where students get hands-on experience through experiments.
