ABOUT ME

I’ve spent my whole life in between the two worlds of Bahrain and the US. It’s taught me a lot about myself and given me so many opportunities. More recently, I realized I also live in between two worlds academically: politics and math. I thought I had to choose one, but I couldn’t; I loved both too much. So I took a leap of faith, and I found my passion in the space where they intersect. I learned that if you care about something, you can make it happen! And that you CAN have too much boba, but that’s unrelated.
