FOUNDERS

KATIE PHAN

FOUNDER

 

I am from Southern California and I go to Mark Keppel High School. As I was searching for different resources online, I realized that it was pretty hard to find "good" ones, which led to the start of this organization. I wanted to help others by putting all the resources in one location so that it was easier to find what they are looking for. I also have no idea what I want to be in the future and I am hoping that this organization will help me, along with others going through a similar crisis.

AFUA SIAW

CO-FOUNDER

 

I am a high school junior from NYC and I joined FutureDestination to help students, find their future destination! I hope that I will be able to help people find their goals in life and inspire them to live a fulfilling life as well. My hobbies are creative writing, activism, medicine, social media, and photography.

ALEJANDRA MENDEZ

CO-FOUNDER

I am a 16 year old student who is currently attending Noble Greenough School. I decided to take part in FutureDestination because I understand how difficult it can be to find resources and decide what you want to do in the future. I hope that this organization will help people feel more confident in themselves and in developing their interests. I am passionate about STEM and the arts, and much of my time is spent reading and painting.

SARAH PARK

CO-FOUNDER

I joined FutureDestination because I want to help other high school students find their passions and possible pathways for their future. I did not realize that I had so many interests in things that I was not exposed to, before finding the right resources. I want to provide other high schoolers their set of right resources to help them discover their passions and create as little confusion about their future as I can.

TEAM

SABEEN SAFI

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

I am a high school junior in Pennsylvania. I keep myself busy with a rigorous course load, reading, playing video games, and participating in extracurriculars. I have found it very difficult to find information about internships, scholarships, competitions, etc. I joined FutureDestination to spread the word about openings that may not be right for me but someone else. I hope that other students can benefit by finding curated possibilities more easily!

MOHAMMED IHTISHAM

WEBSITE MANAGER​

I am a junior in The Bronx High School of Science in NYC. I joined FutureDestination with the hope of being able to help as many students as possible in realizing what they are interested in and the career path that suits them the best. I am very passionate about coding and computer science in general. In my free time, I like drawing, playing video games, and playing football.

SCARLETT CHU

DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH

"I'm a high school sophomore from Hong Kong, studying in Connecticut. I joined FutureDestination because this organization has introduced me to so many unique programs and scholarships, and I wanted to help promote our work to a wider audience and help other students benefit from our resources too! I'm interested in business and the humanities, and I hope to make a change in the world one day."

MRINA SHIVANAND

DIRECTOR OF OUTREACH

I am a high schooler in California and found out about FutureDestination as I was looking for ways to get engaged with my academic interests. I was motivated to join the team because I realize that there are so many other students like me that are looking for resources to guide their future. Some of my hobbies include painting, listening to podcasts, and spending time with my friends.

KEERTHI G

DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH

I am a 16 year old junior in high school and I understand the importance of opportunities in not only enriching learning, but also improving future prospects and gaining valuable experience. I joined FutureDestination because I’d like to change the difficulties faced by other ambitious students, slowly but surely by spreading awareness about accessible opportunities to the right resources. 

ELIZABETH MCBRIDE

DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH

I am a high school junior from Sarasota, Florida. Like many other high school students, I struggle with finding new opportunities open to high school students whether that be internships, organizations, or summer programs. While working with FutureDestination I hope to lessen the burden for other high school students and to aid them in exploring their passions and interests. Some fun facts about me are that I am interested in political science and I love ice cream.
