Indian American

Swetha Prabhakaran, an Indian American has been selected by Michelle Obama the US First Lady to serve in an inaugural education campaign of the Student Advisory Board. The 16 year old PIO will be associated with the campaign that seeks to offer the teenagers in the US opportunities for education.

The parents of Swetha immigrated in 1998 from Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. She will be a part of the ‘Better Make Room’ campaign’s Advisory board for the students for her contribution towards educating the youth in the stream of computer sciences.

The board members will be traveling to the White House on Friday to attend Mrs Obama’s School Counselor of the Year Ceremony. Born in Indianapolis, she is among seventeen students selected by the White House to serve on ‘Better Make Room’ Student Advisory Board. The inaugural Board has 12 high school students and five college students.

Swetha, a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Virginia, is the founder and CEO of Everybody Code Now!, a non-profit body working to empower the next generation of youth to become engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs.

She is the only Indian-American in the list. “I am deeply honoured to be able to serve on this board. I look forward to working with The First Lady’s Reach Higher Initiative,” Swetha said.
