James is a freshman at Princeton University and loves learning about linguistics. Having learned Latin, Mandarin Chinese, and English throughout high school, James has cultivated a passion to learn more about languages in a philosophical and scientific manner.

James founded Linguage in the hopes to share with others his passion for linguistics and help bring communities together with a stronger understanding and cooperation of cultural appreciation. James’s other interests include blogging, basketball, computer science, and physics. He wants to pursue linguistics in college and computational linguistics later in graduate school.

Aryan Nair

Chapter Leader (Edison, NJ) 

Aryan Nair is a high school sophomore who was raised in the suburbs of Edison, New Jersey. Growing up in a multicultural household, Aryan has loved exploring other cultures, traveling the world, and learning new languages (he now knows a total of 6 languages)! After starting with Latin in his freshman year, he admits that it’s most definitely his favorite language.

Exposed to a variety of languages, Aryan was always curious about the science behind languages. That’s when he discovered linguistics. After researching the field during his free time and working on various projects, he decided to get more involved. On the Linguage team, he is excited to spread his love for languages and linguistics.

A keen social activist, Aryan is extremely passionate about the refugee crisis and hopes to break linguistic barriers between refugees and the American public. In his free time, you can usually find Aryan editing cinematic videos, practicing photography, finding new music to make super detailed Spotify playlists, and playing sports with his friends.
