I am from...

Austin, Texas. I was both at the St. David's right north of campus!

My major(s) are...

Plan II Honors (B.A.) and Marketing (B.B.A.)

I am passionate about...

empowering others to serve their communities. I'm passionate about mental health awareness, women's empowerment, and equity and inclusion. I've done work with the refugee community here in Austin, having worked with the Interfaith Action of Central Texas, as well as mental health advocacy, having worked with the UT Counseling and Mental Health Center as well as the nonprofit MannMukti.

experiencing new things, eating new food, and reading. I love learning, anything and everything. 

I am a...

Bangladeshi-American Muslim woman. I grew up very involved in the Bangladeshi community in Austin, singing and dancing in Bengali. Bengali was my first language, and I can read and write it, too! 

I'm also a burnt orange-bleeding Texas Longhorn. Duh!

My favorite fandom is...

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, hands down.

I am involved as...

a Texas Orange Jacket and a Texas Sweetheart, two groups of badass service-oriented women on campus. These are definitely my two home bases on campus.
