Riya is a 17 year old innovator and researcher under the Hospital for Sick Children, where she spent time exploring different ways of applying technologies to solve different diseases. Currently developing the fields of VR, she is integrating virtual reality experiences for developing countries by reinventing telemedical models, and creating Virtual Hospitals. This has been her own personal moonshot ever since she was young, figuring out how we can equate everyone around the globe with healthcare & medical resources. She recently ventured into entrepreneurship within social impact, launching her own startup with her co founder Adara Hagman, that aims to progress the SDG goals of the UN through partnering up with companies to build projects. Riya has always been an avid learner, utilizing hands on experiences and examining intersections between technology & impact to solve the world’s biggest problems.
