Meet Jonathan Bowie: An Unrelenting Champion
Since the age of seven, Earl Woods Scholar and Tufts University alum Jonathan Bowie knew he wanted to serve his country. Born and raised in the nation’s capital, he dreamed of being a fighter pilot. At the age of 16, Jonathan’s plans evolved but his love of country never waned. He was determined to be an officer in the military, with a goal of entering the Air Force—and from that point on, Jonathan set those wheels in motion. Growing up in a working-class family and attending D.C.’s inner-city public schools, he was the first in his household to attend college, but he endured many hurdles throughout those four years. Currently stationed in Stuttgart, Germany completing a two-year tour for the Air Force, find out how Jonathan Bowie has redefined what it means to be a champion.

Disrupting the Gender Gap in Computer Science
We’re excited to introduce you to a STEM trailblazer, Kavya Kopparapu. At just 16 years old and a rising senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Washington, D.C., Kavya is on a mission to introduce more girls to STEM. Her nonprofit, GirlsComputingLeague, has allowed her to reach thousands of girls and speak at numerous distinguished STEM events across the country. During the Tiger Woods Foundation’s DC STEM Fair Teacher Semina, held in collaboration with the D.C STEM Network this past March, we had the opportunity to see Kavya in action as she co-led a professional development class with our instructor. Without a doubt, Kavya Kopparapu is one to watch—and we can’t see where she goes. Read on to hear from Kavya herself, watch her dynamic speech at the March for Science and learn more about her passion for STEM.
