    Akshaya Pai is a 15-year-old from India and is excited to be a part of the Teen Advisory Board and to connect with other young leaders her age. In February 2020, she started Girl Up Janaki at her school. Since then, the club has organized fundraisers, a debate, an open mic event, and a few webinars/Instagram live sessions.

Akshaya is passionate about girls' education, racial equity, body positivity, etc. and enjoys meeting people from around the world. Aside from fighting for change, she enjoys reading books (specifically fantasy) and writing poetry. She discovered her love for STEM after being accepted as a young member of the New York Academy of Sciences nearly 2 years ago.
