Arya Peruma, is a high school student from Ontario Canada. A STEM advocate for youth, STEM/Coding & Programming Instructor, and Social Entrepreneur, she is an individual who is extremely passionate about equal opportunity in STEM, as well as a greater deal of inclusivity and accessibility within STEM. From an extremely young age, Arya was always fascinated with all scopes of STEM, and as she was exploring that, came across the concept of programming and coding. As she had an immense passion to learn, she had to discover various means of supplementary education to achieve this. However, there were numerous limiting factors when seeking this such as limited accessibility. Many students around the world and in her community face the exact same issue of limited accessibility within Coding and STEM education today. As a result, Arya strives to take her experiences to give back to her community and ensure that this is something which is accessible to all students- no matter their background. This is how Coding for Young Minds was established, and since its establishment in 2019, its initiatives have reached many students worldwide and have made a profound impact on those who lack accessibility to STEM education.
STEM education including Coding and Programming should be freely accessible to all students, no matter their background - Arya Peruma, Founder Coding For Young Minds Community Organization
