Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Neha saw millions of people becoming infected in her community and around the world. It didn’t seem right to her that a misunderstanding of social distance could cost someone their life. She created SixFeetApart – a wearable social-distancing device and app that uses the latest developments in ultrasonic technology to alert users when approaching people cross CDC's guidelines of a 6-foot distance. Her work was recognized by the late Princess Diana and the Royal Family through the Diana Award, as well as by President Biden through the National Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award. She was also named a 2021 Global Teen Leader, representing the United States for her innovations and outreach. Recently, she was named WomenTech Network's Rising Star in STEAM of the Year, received the Daily Points of Light Award from former President H.W. Bush, and named on the Future Minds Network's 25 Under 25 List. She interned at NASA, partners with the World Economic Forum as part of the GEneration AI Youth Council on Ethical AI. She also recently released her debut book, “Innovation for Everyone: Solving Real-World Problems with STEM.”
