Arayata was commended for being an outstanding student leader at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf, most recently, as vice president for Asian Deaf Club. Arayata has served as a student ambassador and been influential in promoting and attaining a working relationship with Discovering Deaf Worlds, a non-profit organization that focuses on enhancing self-determination, empowerment and leadership of deaf individuals from different countries.

The annual Student Beacon Awards are presented to students who utilize their leadership skills by fostering diversity and inclusion within the RIT community and demonstrate a balance of academic and co-curricular excellence.
