What is GSYJ-Iris?

The basis behind GSYJ-IRIS, a humanitarian advocacy project, is to exploit the voice and power students hold in alleviating humanitarian issues occurring in the status quo and to demonstrate that being intrigued by STEM doesn't equate to being blind and negligent of the world around us.

The iris, a structure in our eye, consists of 240 different aspects that make it unique, nearly 5 times of that of a fingerprint. Hence, despite coming from radically different cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds, the GSYJ family comes together to voice their opinions and raise awareness on the urgency of certain issues that merit immediate global attention.
