zoomester study challenge | march 1-2, 2021;
day 1: introduce yourself! what’s some basic info you’d like to share about yourself? what are you studying?
hey there! i’ve been here for a while, but i’m lama. i am a third culture kid and currently a senior in my last semester of university in washington, dc. i am studying interdiscplinary studies in comm, law, economics, and governemnt, followed by two minors in computer science and information systems and technology. i am also in my uni’s honors program, so i love learning, reading, and doing research. but i also love indie music, sitcoms, and now? baking.
day 2: why did you decide on your major?
i have thought about changing my major several times. but because i am interested in the intersections of policy, law, and technology such as algorthimic bias (ai in policing), data privacy rights, digital advocacy and equality (digital divide), and cybersecurity... i thought it was great to understanding technology through my minors, but also on the policy level through my major. it’s so much work, but i am almost there!

“Why so much grief for me? No man will hurl me down to Death, against my fate. And fate? No one alive has ever escaped it, neither brave man nor coward, I tell you - it’s born with us the day that we are born.”
~ Homer, The Iliad
Currently reading The Iliad, I’ve slowed down during this past couple of weeks but I am now determined to find a more regular pace, even though I’m still not sure how I feel about this particular Italian translation. Meanwhile, every now and then I also sit down to learn a bit of the ancient greek language.
