Hi everyone! My name is Nikitha Bhimireddy, and I’m a current highschooler in Ohio. I live with my parents, my little brother, and my goldfish in my backyard pond. I’m very active, love to goof around, and you’ll almost always catch me smiling!
My journey that began The Rising Youth, started way before I even realized it. When I was younger, during my frequent visits to India in the summer, I would always be shocked to see what I did. Just a few blocks up from my grandparent’s house were miles and miles of hand made tents, where young children lived with their families.
Many times, these children didn’t have access to a proper education, and even if they did, the public schools they went to in the local area had little to no money. Unfortunately, the schools smelled of sweat and dirt, and the students were limited to only a few resources, and minimal opportunities. It was nothing like I’ve ever seen before. I couldn’t even begin to think about what it would be like, and feel like on a day to day basis, to go through what they did.
Looking back now, and being fortunate enough to have access to amazing resources, technology, and platforms, I knew I couldn’t just sit back and watch. Those children in India, don’t stand alone. There are countless other individuals and children in the United States, and all over the world, that suffer from the same fate.
And so, The Rising Youth began.
If we don’t begin to take a step forward by using the platforms that we were given, then who will? Impacts start one step at a time. It’s going to be a long journey, but I decided to jump in for the ride!
By taking my passion for biology, I started a YouTube Channel under The Rising Youth. Here, I upload fun and simple science and health-related videos for children of all ages to watch. I also run a free virtual science program called ScienceZoomz, where my team and I conduct amazing science experiments for students to learn from and recreate themselves. My mission is to help children locally, all over the country, and all over the world, develop and grow a passion for science that they can hold on to for many years to come.
The young generations are what bring about change to the world with their new and innovative ideas. By inspiring them, and helping them spark an interest, these same children have the potential to grow up and make remarkable breakthroughs. These same children are The Rising Youth!
Please join me on my journey by supporting The Rising Youth. Feel free to check out my YouTube videos, and share them with family and friends. Change has to begin somewhere, and this is just the very beginning!
