Meet Gitanjali, a Former Kumon Student who Is Changing the World
Gitanjali is a former Kumon Student who is changing the world, invention by invention. Inspired by the Flint water crisis, she invented a cost-effective device that detects lead levels in water. Named America’s Top Young Scientist for her work on the device, she was inspired by a more personal crisis for her next innovation. Having witnessed a family friend struggle with addiction in the wake of a car accident, she developed a device to detect early-stage opioid addiction. She’s now working on an app to combat cyber bullying, tackling yet another societal issue. She credits Kumon with helping her learn to overcome challenges.
