​Inspired by her personal experience with the educational pathways taken for the community interested in science, 15-year old Pari Latawa founded SparkED with the goal of increasing scientific & educational literacy while providing resources for youth to explore all career paths.


While hosting numerous in-class mentoring sessions, Pari realized how just basic support from high school students served the curiously for elementary students from low-income families and stimulated their lifelong passion for learning. This realization took a step further when Pari visited schools in low socioeconomic areas in North India, where students who didn’t have many sources of motivation and had numerous factors working against their education still wanted to attend college or at least a Community College so they could get a decent job and help their families.


This sparked her to bring a plethora of knowledge and information to these students who lacked the right guidance and role models.
