KIRAKIRA aCADemy founder, Suz Somersall, studied Visual Art & Gender Studies as an undergrad at Brown University, Metals & 3D Manufacturing as a graduate student at The Rhode Island School of Design, and launched KIRAKIRA while at The University of Virginia Darden Business School's Incubator.

Through the lens of jewelry design, we at KIRAKIRA aCADemy are working to inspire creativity and enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) curriculum, specifically targeting women and girls.

All of our KIRAKIRA aCADemy classes are free and all of the programs we are teaching have free downloads for students or are easily accessible in both high schools and colleges around the country.

3D printers are becoming cheaper and more available every day but the number of people who can actually create customized objects with them using mechanical engineering software is exceedingly small.

WE WANT TO BRIDGE THIS GAP.

SISTER CHARITIES KIRAKIRA SUPPORTS ARE BCRF, WPA AND DRESS FOR SUCCESS.
