Husky Stories: Sairandri Sathyanarayanan discusses the nonprofit she started

Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Each and every Husky goes through their own journey, undergoes their own unique experiences and, most importantly, has their very own story to share. Husky Stories is a mini-series in which Huskies share their successes, failures, experiences — their stories. There is no one way to be a Husky. Indeed, the culmination of individuals’ stories shape the picture of what it means to be a Husky.

Welcome to the third of Husky Stories! Sairandri Sathyanarayanan is a senior majoring in molecular cellular and developmental biology and minoring in chemistry. Sairandri is the founder of Mental Health for Every Adolescent. Mental Health for Every Adolescent is a nonprofit program that aims to bring awareness to mental health and provide workshops in Seattle, India and Dubai. She is also Husky 100, Mary Gates Leadership Scholar and Washington Research Fellow. Sairandri’s interest are broad, ranging from mental health awareness to music to cancer research. She is here to share her Husky experience with us.
