Meet SHAD Fellow, Hamrish Saravanakumar!

Hamrish Saravanakumar, long-time STEM Kids Rock Volunteer

We are so excited to showcase long-time STEM Kids Rock volunteer Hamrish Saravanakumar!

Hamrish is currently going into grade 12 at Father Michael McGivney Catholic Academy in their International Baccalaureate Program. His interests at school vary from Chemistry and Biology to Mathematics and Economics. He is a very well-rounded student who has been able to effectively manage his extracurriculars and academic career.

Hamrish is the Vice-President of his school's Student Athletic Council, executive member of the Student Leaders club, and has active roles on the Varsity Soccer team, the Newspaper committee, debate club, South Asian Cultural Club and Announcements Club.

Hamrish takes any opportunity he can to give back to the community and work with others. He has volunteered with the City of Markham, Markham Food Bank, and the Markham Public Library to name a few. Out of all of his experiences thus far in his life, his dedication to the Unionville-Milliken Soccer Club's High-5 All Abilities Team partnered with Special Olympics Ontario and his role with STEM Kids Rock are by far the most enjoyable, rewarding, and uplifting. He loves coming out to STEM Kids Rock initiatives in the community to teach and inspire children about the fascinating aspects of science and never misses out on High 5 practices with the most dedicated players who simply require a little bit of 1 on 1 time to strive as athletes. Hamrish was accepted into the prestigious SHAD Program and just completed a month at the University of New Brunswick! He hopes to expand his knowledge on the sciences and eventually pursue a career in this field. He will continue to strive for new opportunities to improve his leadership abilities and scientific intellect, especially through STEM Kids Rock!

Here are just some of the awards/achievements that Hamrish has received -

•Grade 9 Math Pascal Contest School Champion •York Catholic District School Board - Outstanding School Spirit Leadership Award

•Bronze Cross, High 5, and Standard First Aid certified
