Executive Leadership:

Rishi Gorrepati

CEO & Founder

Rishi is interested in promoting access to education and supporting people’s abilities to lead and grow. From growing his massive National Geographic magazine collection to obsessing over geography competitions in middle school, Rishi realized the importance of a global education in order to better understand the world we all live in. In his free time, he likes to swim, cook, and read!

Pu-Kai Tseng

President & Co-Founder

Pu-Kai’s (Phil) STEM education experiences in the Teen Science Alliance at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) exposed him to youth from different backgrounds. In his free time Phil spends time volunteering at Peacehealth Southwest Medical Center’s CVICU, providing assistance to patient visitors and nurses and at the same time attaining exposure to the medical field.

Sawyer Lamey

Vice President

Sawyer is interested in outreach and spreading messages through the power of the internet and social media. Growing up in a family of pilots, she believes the Atmosphere Project is one of the easiest ways to spread curiosity and get kids learning about aerospace so they start questioning the world around them. Sawyer is a competitive varsity tennis player and enjoys running and taking outdoor walks.

Destinee Cenita


Destinee believes in universal access to education, regardless of social class, ethnic background, or physical and mental disabilities. By working with her family business, she was able to have a look at what education in different countries was like through their scholarship program for low-income students in the Philippines. She also enjoys gymnastics, composing music, and playing the violin.

Austin Lee

Web Developer & Graphic Designer

Austin’s passion for design and creativity is evident through all of his hobbies and projects. In the past, he’s created t-shirts & stickers of his favorite teachers, and just last year, he launched his own board game, The Bear Game. He enjoys experimenting with photography and graphic design. Austin loves working together with others to bring ideas into reality and see the end product of his imagination.

Rae Xin

San Antonio Chapter Founder

Rae is a huge fan of cats, but is also an incoming freshman at UC Berkeley, working towards a B.A. in Computer Science. She has a passion for mathematics, cybersecurity, and writing. But most importantly, she loves working on a team—whether it’s for a sport, a cybersecurity CTF, or a volunteering project. As a student for as long as she can remember, she loves learning, leading, and exploring.
