Nikhe Braimah

Nikhe hails from Brentwood, California, a small, corn-producing town in the Bay Area. He’s a History major on the Social Change and Social Movements track, but he’s floated around ER&M, EP&E, American Studies, Sociology, and Anthropology as possible major choices—ask him about anything humanities, social science, or pre-law!

At Yale, Nikhe has been involved with the Yale Daily News, the Dwight Hall Center for Public Service and Social Justice, the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Department of History, the Yale School of Public Health, and the Institute of Social and Policy Studies, but he’s had the most fun performing poetry with WORD, Yale’s oldest spoken word poetry group. Nikhe has explored creative writing, academia, and public humanities while, and he’s interested in pursuing a post-college path that lets him explore the intersection scholarship, art, and public service.

In his free time, Nikhe loves (pretending) to study in the Branford courtyard, playing pickleball, watching professional tennis, Letterboxd-ing movies, and reading poetry. Most of all, he is excited to serve the incoming squirrels as a FroCo!
