Computer Science and Psychology
At Yale, Aranyo studies computer science and psychology and manages an active psychology lab. Their depth of experience with the scientific method aids the hypothesis-driven work they do as a researcher. Beyond their scientific experience, however, they are confident that their perspectives as a nonbinary person of color are as much of an asset as any to the BIPOC Scholarship community.
Aranyo’s first experience with service was developing nano pesticides for a thousand farmers from their native village, work they shared at Ashoka, the world’s largest community of change leaders, as an elected Young Changemaker. Their work was further helped by the Diana Award 2021, which brought in corporate sponsorships.
In order to work directly with underserved populations, they interned at Reservoir, a neurodiversity consulting firm. As a point-of-contact for neurodiverse clients of an experiential learning platform, they spearheaded the development of applications and decks for VC fundraises and social-entrepreneurship grants.
Aranyo is interested in STEM, business, and society and how the kaleidoscope of these different crystals cranks the rotating chamber to produce the world we see. To explore that, they want to play with individual topics: research, writing, and advocacy, to refract the light to shape better practices and fairer policies.
