I’m Ajey. Pleasure to meet you!
I use he/him pronouns, and I'm a Class of 2019 student at UMass Amherst Commonwealth Honors College. I major in Electrical Engineering and minor in Philosophy.
In Dungeons and Dragons parlance, I have a dual-class skillset: I am both electrical (grid systems) engineer and writer. This lets me take on roles that can’t be filled by most engineers—or most writers.
I can parse through code with a pen and paper and then explain what that code does in a skimmable documentation page.
I can collect information of lab research work and then compile that data into a report for the State House.
I can take on vaguely defined engineering projects, develop them into something interesting, and then explain what I did in a report that doesn’t bore its audience.
Most engineers don’t have the writing skill to speak for their work.
And most writers don’t have the technical chops to understand engineers.
But I have both. I think like an engineer, but I communicate like a writer.
And if you’ve seen my name on a resume, odds are you need someone just like me.
