Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi all! My name is Syeda. I'm a junior at Barnard College, studying psychology and computer science. Despite my background in STEM, I quite love the arts! At college, I've discovered the perfect outlet for expressing my passion for media and design. During the past two years, I've been involved in many on-campus activities, such as the Athena Digital Design Agency (an innovative start-up teaching women essential coding skills) and as one of the web assistants for creating Barnard's newly-designed website! I've also got a passion for recreational singing, hence my involvement in the Columbia University Glee Club, while engaging in the film scene on campus as a producer for the Columbia University Sketch Show. I've truly got to experience the best of both worlds on both campuses!
