See how Alferos is using Apple technology to drive impactful policy change and help combat discrimination and digital insecurity in higher education.
Studied Business Administration/Finance,
California State University, Fullerton, class of 2022
President, California State University Student Association, 2021-2022
“I’m doing so many things. My devices can’t fail. They can’t be a limiting factor. I love the flexibility of Apple devices, and how dependable they are, wherever I am.”
As a recent graduate of California State University, Fullerton, business major Isaac Alferos has tirelessly engaged as a digital equity advocate and activist in higher education — and he’s made real change across California and beyond.
As one of the few African and Asian Americans in his school, Isaac experienced systemic racism early on. “My teachers disciplined me harder — I was always perceived as being disruptive. I learned to reject what I was, in favor of performing what they wanted me to be.”
At CSU Fullerton, Isaac joined the Male Success Initiative, where men of color are empowered to achieve their potential. Feeling “at home” for the first time, it inspired him to advocate for an accessible, inclusive future in education through policy change.
For the past year, Isaac has served as president of the Cal State Student Association and was recognized by the California State Legislature as the official representative of 480,000 students across all 23 CSU campuses. He’s chosen Apple technology to power every step of his work, from the lecture hall to city hall.
Notes on iPad with Apple Pencil supports every aspect of his civic engagements with board members and campus leaders, as well as his research work. “iPad is my Swiss army knife — it works for all situations, and seamlessly with my Mac and iPhone to support my full calendar of activities.”
For academics, Isaac uses Mac with RStudio to crunch data sets and conduct research for his successful proposals — like writing statewide legislation that makes it easier for low-income students to apply to college with a single, universal application.
iPad also enables his creativity and helps “humanize what leadership looks like, by making it personal.” Through the Black + Brown Healing Project, an organization he founded to support BIPOC writers and creatives, he wrote a book of poetry capturing his experiences as a black, queer man — all on iPad.
The foundation of leadership and productivity that Isaac has built as an undergrad will continue to serve as a springboard for his commitment to social justice. And he’s just getting started.

See how Scaggs, an illustrator, photographer, writer, and filmmaker, is using Apple technology and science to ignite a new generation of Black artists.
Studying for a Bachelors of Arts in Documentary Filmmaking and Minor in Physics
Spelman College, United States, class of 2025
“The lens through which we view the world composes our reality and affirms our identity.”
Born into a family of strong women, creators, and storytellers, Miya is using the power of stories and her love of science to inspire a new generation.
Miya chose to study documentary filmmaking in Atlanta because “Black arts are emerging here, it’s the new Black Hollywood of the South and I want to immerse myself in that environment.” And she chose to minor in physics because Jordan Peele’s “Nope” inspired her to study how science can be applied to filmmaking.
Today, as a sophomore at Spelman College — the oldest Historically Black College and University for women in the U.S. — Miya’s journey is guided on the discussion “of thought-provoking, Black female artists that haven’t been pushed to the forefront as much as their male counterparts.”
Her films and stories are rooted in art, science, and Black Futurism — an emerging genre that addresses historic themes of the African diaspora with science and technology. Her documentaries explore the perspectives of thought leaders and artists in the black community — as well as their journeys. And she uses Apple technology to support every aspect of her mission.
She’s interviewed a famous physicist, a renowned filmmaker, and prominent artists on iPhone. She pulls the video into her Mac, edits with Adobe Premiere and designs audio with Logic Pro. “Mac has transformed my storytelling capabilities by becoming a conduit for editing sequences, sound design, and mixing and producing beats.”
As a recent director in Beats Black Creators Program — bringing HBCU students from across the U.S. to imagine, look forward, and collaborate on a film — she used her favorite workflow on Mac which includes the Celtx Script app for writing, the Pitch app for treatments, and Notes on iPad for production. “Whenever I’m creating, it’s mainly about staying organized. Apple products streamline the creative process for me,” says Miya.
Miya tells even more stories through poetry. She creates illustrations on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, and then pulls them into Notes to annotate her lyric poetry on top. “iPad has allowed me to create beautiful graphic designs while layering my pieces with multiple colors and textures for visual art and renderings.”
And for engineering mechatronics classes that focus on optics and sound engineering, she uses Notes on iPad to draw concepts and doodles, and Logic Pro on Mac with the Unity app for game design activities.
Currently at New York University’s film school attending a study away program for a semester, Miya is broadening her sights and skills in storytelling — to inspire and empower other young girls and women, just as she has been uplifted by the women in her life.
“I want to provide more opportunities for young African Americans to hear from leaders and creators that look like them, people making a difference now, proposing the question, ‘What is Black Futurism…what’s next?’”

Turn ideas into apps with Swift.
Swift is a coding language that’s easy to learn and used by developers everywhere. And no matter your level, Apple has resources to help you advance your coding skills.
See how Preenapun, a second year medical student, combines research, creativity, and Apple technology to discover solutions that improve public health and safety.
Studying Medicine and Data Science
Chiang Mai University, class of 2026
“Technology today is part of every field, so understanding the fundamentals of app development is quite important.”
With a passion for research, data science, and apps, Chiang Mai University medical student Gam Preenapun is determined to make a positive impact in her community by discovering innovative solutions that improve public health.
Gam was first introduced to the world of coding and Swift at a high school camp. Hooked on a new way to solve problems, she watched YouTube tutorials to teach herself the basics of app development with Xcode on Mac.
“MacBook is my favorite Apple device. I use it for all my coding, and it’s easy to use with Xcode. It’s stable, reliable, and can run all day.”
Today, Gam applies her coding skills to develop app prototypes focused on health and wellness. One example is Girl Guard, a project she created using playgrounds in Xcode on Mac for women to help combat sexual harassment.
“I was inspired to develop this app concept based on hearing my friends’ stories, as well as my own personal experience and knowing how scary it can feel to travel alone.” Girl Guard includes features called “Fight Like a Girl,” which sounds a siren to call for help, and “Trustworthy Friend,” which simulates a conversation with others to help deter potential harassment.
Girl Guard has received positive recognition from Gam’s community, and was also recognized as one of Apple’s 2021 Swift Student Challenge winners. This feedback has reinforced Gam’s desire to focus her studies and passions on creating tools that promote well-being in society.
For med school, Gam loves using iPad for drawing and sketching her next inventions. She uses Apple Pencil with GoodNotes on iPad to bring anatomy and biochemistry notes to life, and Keynote to create compelling presentations that showcase her data research — which is focused on improving access to healthcare in rural communities across Thailand and beyond.
“My goal is to find solutions that help people at scale — to support a brighter future for today, and future generations.”
