Aryaana Khan

Youth Fundraising Advisory Board

New York

Aryaana Khan was born and raised in Bangladesh, a country submerged underwater every year as a result of climate change. Four years after moving to New York, she began doing climate advocacy work with various non-profit organizations, and became involved with ACE as an ACE Action Fellow and the New York City Communications Fellow. She has remained involved with ACE. In 2018, she led a youth climate retreat in the Adirondack Mountains with leaders across New York State, traveled to San Francisco to interview high-level attendees at the Global Climate Action Summit, and joined the Youth Fundraising Advisory Board. Outside of ACE, Aryaana has done intersectional work with workers’ justice, community displacement, the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, and environmental health. She is a college freshman majoring in biochemistry and hopes to pursue a medical career in which she can mitigate the health impacts caused by larger issues such as environmental inequity and climate change.
