CINCINNATI - April 27, 2014 - PRLog -- As a student at Sycamore High School, Rajat Bhageria founded a website—CafeMocha.org—that allows students to publish their creative essays, stories, poems, and research to a social-network where they will not only be able to share their work with the world, but also inspire others to follow their creative interests.

“Schools are killing creativity. Honestly, high schools force students to memorize randomfactoids rather than inspiring them to do something that they will intrinsically put effort and innovative thinking into, such as creative writing. That’s where CafeMocha.org comes in.”

Bhageria says that students will be able to easily publish their writing—something incredibly difficult in high school—just as musicians post their sounds to SoundCloud or photographers display their images on Flickr.

The Cincinnati community, especially his teachers at Sycamore, heavily influenced Bhageria. Already many of his teachers are motivating their students to publish their history research papers or creative stories to CafeMocha, and there is widespread positive commentary. Additionally, hundreds of users around the country have published their work into “Mochas” (or categories) spanning from poetry to non-fiction to chemistry.

In the future, Bhageria hopes to establish CafeMocha as a major tool that schools can use to inspire students as a whole, and young writers can use to showcase their writing & receive feedback.
