Preeti Iyer receives Class of 1901 Medal at Princeton
Princeton senior Preeti Iyer, a resident of Alpharetta, Georgia, received the Walter E. Hope Class of 1901 Medal, which recognizes the senior who, in the judgment of the student’s classmates, has done the most for Princeton University. Majoring in computer science, and a member of the Forbes College, she has led the Princeton Menstrual Products Task Force for three years to provide free menstrual products in Princeton restrooms. She is also the founder and director of Period Palooza: A Menstrual Equity and Innovation Conference. With data science internships at Facebook, Tesla, and the Associate of American Medical Colleges, Iyer, along with four other Princeton students, also co-founded Representable.org, a crowdsourced redistricting tool that helps combat gerrymandering and improves redistricting efforts across the county.
