JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — From founding the finance and investment club at her school, to playing lacrosse and maintaining a 4. 79 GPA, Veda Garg enjoys staying busy.
She’s a senior at Stanton College Preparatory School, where she is the Multicultural Association's Dance Team leader and the Indian Cultural Society choreographer.
Garg joined the post-pandemic task force with the Zuckerberg Institute last summer, to voice concerns about the pandemic with big industry leaders.
“I think it’s important for people our age to feel like their opinion matters, because there is a lot that we can contribute to our future,” Garg said.
Despite her busy schedule, she still finds time to work on an internship. She says staying active is the best way to experience growth.
“My thing is, I always want to try new things and I want to do as much as I can because I think that by doing new things I’m getting closer to finding out what I really like and what I really want to do,” Garg said.
Congrats to Veda Garg for being recognized as First Coast News’ student of the week!
