Yohan Mutta

Biography

Hello everyone! My name is Yohan Mutta, I use he/him/his pronouns. I am a member of the class of 2023 from Kenya, studying International and Public Affairs focusing on Development and I am also pursuing a certificate in Data Fluency. Outside of the classroom, I work as a community programming coordinator with the Global Brown Center for International Students where I organize events to build community among international students at Brown. I am currently a Royce Fellow with the Swearer Center for Public Service, where I am conducting a research project grounded in engaged scholarship investigating what large infrastructure projects in post-colonial states reveal about approaches to development. I am also involved with the African Student Association, Decolonization@Brown, and the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations, our Model UN conference for high school students that brings over 1000 students to campus every fall.  Beyond my pursuits in and out of the classroom, you can find me exploring Providence’s culinary offerings, working out at the Nelson Fitness Center, or curating one of my many music playlists. If any of this (or more) interests you, it’d be my distinct pleasure to tell you more!
