Sajani Mayadunne

Managing Editor

Beginning my journey as a youth volunteer after schooling, I discovered my passion for volunteering, which even led me to represent Sri Lanka in the UN. Later, I was given the opportunity to volunteer for IEEE, where I held positions in the IEEE Computer Society Sri Lanka as well as the IEEE Student Activities Committee. Through these, I was able to gain knowledge and experience that allowed me to give back to the community. I wish to keep volunteering as I learn to make an impact in the world.
