New York Chapter Leader

Sujay Sundar

My name is Sujay Sundar and I am a freshman at Jericho High school. I am passionate about Computer and Bio Sciences, Business management and Math. I presented a Scratch-based application on Environmental best practices in 5th grade at the New York Hall of Science STEM night and this received a special mention from the New York City Chancellor. I was selected to represent my school at the FBLA New York State competition for which I built a GUI application to track student community service hours. I received the first prize, among Long Island high schools, in the Emerging Leaders Business Competition in the Healthcare Category. I am currently pursuing several Technology and Soft Skills Courses.

As one of the GCL Chapter leaders in New York, I hope to share my passion for computer science with the community, particularly in under-represented demographics, by conducting hackathons, innovation workshops, STEAM days and facilitating tech clubs. I am the recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Gold Award and I am currently interning with my County Legislator on Crisis Mitigation. I am CPR trained and helped manually build face shields for local first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic. In my spare time, I enjoy playing basketball, practicing classical music and I am also part of my school’s chess team.”
