Montco High School senior uses technology to empower other young immigrants

“A good soul is a person who finds a problem and then they want to fix that problem by doing whatever they can,” said Sai Shettar, a senior at Spring-Ford Area High School in Royersford.

Shettar, 17, has spent the past four years fixing problems in his community. The self-described tech lover runs the Philadelphia Chapter of World Computer Exchange (WCE). The Boston-based non-profit takes donated laptops, desktops, iPads, and other devices and refurbishes them. They outfit the technology with educational software and then ship them to those in need all over the world.

“One of my main goals with this was to bridge the educational gap that some kids face,”  Sai said.
