She previously studied Child and Adolescent Development at San Francisco State University. After graduating, she worked in various educational capacities (nonprofit sector, educational field trip programs, public schools, and private schools). She is involved in community outreach and is passionate about free education and educational resources. She currently works as a Recruiting Coordinator for Course Hero in Redwood City.

Seema’s passion for improving access to education for all students stems from her involvement in tutoring and mentoring organizations at UCLA, and later her work as a ninth-grade Algebra teacher through Teach for America. She is excited to be a part of Read Write Discover as she believes that literacy is an essential skill that many students struggle with. She studied Applied Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles and then studied computer science at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
