Doonyah Alucozai

West Lafayette, Indiana

Doonyah Alucozai, 17, of West Lafayette, Indiana, a senior at West Lafayette Junior/Senior High School, cofounded “CoderDojoAnvil,” a nonprofit that offered free coding classes to more than 250 students from underserved communities; she recruited volunteers, secured space and corporate sponsors, organized community events and helped design the curriculum. Doonyah was inspired to start this project after being unable to find affordable STEM-related programs in her area.
