A researcher-in-training from the island-state of Singapore, Tan Zong Xuan ’18 studies electrical engineering and cognitive science at Yale, and still harbors their adolescent dream of one day becoming a cyborg. Despite initial skepticism, Zong Xuan joined the Yale Effective Altruists because they came to see it as one of the best ways to use their class privilege and relative wealth to improve the world, and hopes to use their position to help bridge the divide between social justice and effective altruism – a divide which rightfully shouldn’t exist.
