Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a sophomore at Stanford University that never had a clue about what she wanted to study in college, and still isn't quite sure. Being as undecided as I was, I tried to study everything I possibly could during high school; everything from Biology to Elementary Piano, to Calculus, Physics and Art History. My first year of college was the same; I dabbled in computer science, literature, and political science! While I would love to take a class that involved watching non-stop soccer, I'm looking at taking some Economics courses now. Although my major is up in the air, I absolutely LOVE Arabic and have decide to minor in it!
