Bio: Keniel is fascinated with theories of change and how human beings can create unexpectedly large positive social impact. At Yale, he approaches this academically by balancing himself between the quantitative and qualitative disciplines while, extra-curricularly, he is heavily involved in investing in the Yale Christian and International Student community. He hopes to be part of a campus movement that is deeply reflective on its purpose and values, and how our every day actions manifest or contradict such a vision in our local communities and around the globe.
