Ayushi Sinha graduated Cum Laude from the Princeton University Department of Computer Science, received a certificate in Cognitive Science, and is a member of the Product team at Nines, a startup bringing AI to radiology diagnostics. Having co-founded her own startup, WellPower, a vertically integrated Uber for water filtration and distribution in East Africa, she is particularly interested in social entrepreneurship.

Astha Sinha graduated from high school this spring and plans to pursue Computer Science at Vanderbilt University. Alongside computer science, she is also interested in the arts and sees entrepreneurship as a way to combine the two.

Yustha Yoga is a desi-inspired athleisure founded by two sisters, Ayushi and Astha. The co-founders grew up doing yoga with their grandparents in India and playing dress-up with their mother’s Banarasi saris. Fast forward to today: they are committed to bringing the fabrics and patterns that women in their family have worn for generations by designing south-Asian inspired athleisure.
