Gabe is a junior at Yale-NUS College. As a psychology major, he is particularly interested in how socio-cultural differences influence motivational patterns and strategies used to overcome obstacles. Additionally, through work in the lab, Gabe hopes to gain insight into how research about fixed and growth mindsets can be applied to remedy issues of inequality.

Hi, I am Anandita (translates to someone who spreads happiness!), a sophomore at Yale-NUS college. I have been fascinated with Psychology for about a decade now and the study of mindsets and motivation epitomises the applicability of Psychology to me. Also interested in pedagogy, I feel that Psychological research can facilitate educators and hence infuse a culture of positivity, growth, and grit in students. I am really excited to explore how people’s mindsets can shape their motivations, and how studying these can help me be a better educator.
