Mentoring & Teaching
As Tejas has been trained over various areas of interest, spanning from laboratory research to magazine publishing, he has come to appreciate the value of such guidance.
Tejas’ desire to share knowledge has evolved into teaching other students the skills and techniques acquired during his years of plant biology research at Fort Valley State University and neuro-oncology research Karmanos Cancer Institute. He has helped instruct programs such as the USDA AgDiscovery Program, which is a competitive summer immersion camp for high school students interested in the agricultural and veterinary sciences.
Additionally, in a permanent effort to give back to his community, Tejas has founded and directs a fully-functional CPR education non-profit organization which teaches students in the Middle Georgia region and in the rural villages of South India how to perform and utilize basic life-saving skills.
Tejas has also undertaken the role of a mentor at school, holding key leadership positions in clubs including the Student Ambassadors, the Students Advocating for Life without Substance Abuse (SALSA) club, and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) at Stratford Academy over the past 4 years.
