Episode 68 - In conversation with Shreya Nallapati

This week we spoke to Shreya Nallapati, an activist, entrepreneur and high school senior. Like many of us, Shreya watched Emma González’s speech after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February of this year. But instead of using tech to send just thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families, Shreya decided to use her tech skills and knowledge to build a product that uses predictive analytics and artificial intelligence in order to both predict and prevent future school shootings in America.

What started out as a one girl team with a big dream, soon grew into an organisation with 200 enthusiastic contributors - most of whom are female teenagers, just like Shreya. She talks to us about the future of this project and the milestones ahead of her and we couldn’t be more proud to share this conversation with you!
