Maple Grove resident and Wayzata High School student Ananya Mishra was named
a national runner-up for the 2014 Aspirations for Women in Computing award.
Presented by the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT),
this prestigious honor is based on interests, aspirations, accomplishments, and
community involvement in computing and technology.

film industry. She has received international recognition for her digital
photography and videos. In the future, Mishra would like to major in computer
science or management information systems and become a software engineer. She
will continue to direct films and aims to fulfill her dream of being selected
