Hometown: Kula, HI

Intended Major: Computer Science

My name is Akhil Fernando-Bell, I am from Maui, Hawaii, part of the incoming Cornell University, class of 2025. I am excited to study Computer Science, as well as take on new experiences while being a part of the Milstein program. While I lean toward technological fields of study, I know the importance of studying humanities, more specifically, social and cultural histories and human social development. Having the ability to moderate material aspirations in the sciences with principles rooted in reason is something that I prioritize in my life. I hope to be involved in the development and evolution of paradigm shifting technology alongside like minded individuals working to bring humanity into a better understanding of itself.
