Afeefah K. '21


Hi y’all (can you tell I’m Texan?)! After having spent my entire life in the DFW metroplex, I’m now halfway across the country to spend the next four years @ MIT (brrr Boston winters)! Am I miles & miles away from home? YES. But, little things like friends that make my bed & Facetime calls with family make this place feel like a second home. My interests include obsessing over Bollywood & really anything Indian, annoying people with cheesy Pinterest quotes, pressing a button on my DSLR, throwing together paint on canvases, and chasing after the aesthetic. In the past year I’ve come to realize two things: one, 500 word essays can tell a lot about a person and two, blog posts can tell you even more. As I discover new parts of myself and the world around me, I can’t wait to share it all. It is my hope that I make you fall in love with MIT harder than I did. Words have that kind of magic, right? It’s going to be one crazy roller coaster, but I’m glad you’re here for it!
