Shanya Prasad

Hello all, my name is Shanya! I am a school counseling intern pursuing my Master's degree in School Counseling from California State University East Bay. During the academic year of 22-23, I will be working with the 12th-grade students this year alongside Nancy Sanchez! I am thrilled to be a part of the Farmers Family! I am even more excited to work and gain experience at Hayward High this year. I look forward to meeting, supporting, and working with you throughout the 22-23 academic school year! Don't be afraid to email me or stop by and say hi or make an appointment to chat with me! My goal as a counseling intern is to offer guidance and support to ensure you are on track to graduate and navigate life and the next steps after high school and beyond!
