Vote for Janani -- SMHS Grad on Her Way to Harvard and Contestant in an Elite Harvard Speaker Competition
The SMUHSD team is honored to announce that a recent San Mateo High grad, Janani Krishnan (photographed left), is on her way to Harvard this fall and is already making her mark. She has been selected as only one of six finalists in the TEDxHarvardCollege Prefrosh-Graduate Speaker Competition! On September 18th, professors, research experts, and all-around inspiring people will take the stage at Sanders Theater at Harvard University to share their ideas with the world at the annual renowned TEDxHarvardCollege conference. The Prefrosh-Graduate Speaker Competition finalist who receives the most votes will have the opportunity to join them in spreading their vision at this incredible event. If given the opportunity to present at TEDxHarvardCollege, Janini will perform her award-winning original slam poem "Power," outlining the reaction of an individual watching acts of police brutality on her television screen, and discussing the emerging role of spoken word in talking about the increasingly pressing issues of racism and police brutality. But to make it to the stage on September 18th, Janini will need your vote! Voting closes this Friday, July 29th. Don't delay. Vote for Janini now by clicking here.
