Zoya Surani is currently a sophomore at Harvard University hoping to pursue a Bachelor's in Neuroscience on the Mind, Brain, and Behavior track as well as a minor in Educational Studies.
She hopes to understand the biological and psychological explanations related to child development and expand this newfound knowledge to her non-profit iConquer, which seeks to educate children ages three to seven years old about obesity, diabetes and nutrition.
iConquer, through its use of puppet shows, animated movies, dance routines, and self-created mascot Banunu, has reached over 15,000 children and been recognized by the City of Corpus Christi (through various proclamations, even creating an "iConquer Day"), Hometown Heroes, CITGO, Disney YSA, Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, Canadian Senator Mobina Jaffer, and other individuals and organizations.
