Sashank Iyer

Director of Systems

Sashank Iyer

Hello there! I'm Sashank Iyer, a rising senior at Cupertino High School. I like to follow the news, play my kazoo, or watch sports in my spare time! My role as a member of the exec team is to handle the website, help manage spreadsheets, take care of a lot of the analytics, logistics, and numbers involved from an organizational standpoint, and also assist with the occasional outreach (managing the Grant Writing and News Outreach Team).

Why do you like helping out YAPA Kids? What motivated you to join this organization?

I like helping out YAPA Kids because I am aware of how much I myself would have appreciated a free learning opportunity as a kid. I regret not being able to have been on the receiving end of such a wonderful organization like this and I don't want that to happen to any other children, especially those who are in need of education like this. I also enjoy the advent of working with people from all over the world, especially as we all navigate this digital landscape and try to use it to our advantage.

What have you learned from teaching at YAPA Kids or otherwise contributing to the organization? Have you enjoyed your time here?

I have learned quite a few things from my career at YAPA Kids so far. My managerial and leadership skills, especially in an online setting, have developed quite a bit here at YAPA Kids. I have also learned how to work with people from various backgrounds, ages, and places all over the world. I have very much enjoyed my time here and look to have another wonderful here at YAPA Kids.
