Having moved to California from Chennai, 15-year-old Varsha Subramanyam has now been elected as the teen commissioner of Cupertino, California.

A student of Monta Vista High school, Varsha is about to enter her tenth grade, but is already a great inspiration to young NRI girls in the USA! Realising the problems faced by youngsters in Cupertino, the teenager applied for the position through her school.

After several processes like written application and test, letters of recommendation and personal interview, she was chosen by the Mayor of the city. “This was a new experience for me since I have never applied for something that required a recommendation letter.

It was also challenging for me to go into an interview with the Mayor of Cupertino,” shares Varsha. As teen commissioner, apart from meeting with the Mayor to discuss various issues faced by teenagers, Varsha’s focus is to reduce the students’ stress levels in schools. The team of commissioners working under the Mayor are also in-charge of conducting cultural programmes, hackathons and are part of discussions with the Mayors of other cities. My prime focus is to conduct many educational programmes for children with special needs.
