- Samia Zia
Hi! I am Samia, a (now) sophomore pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Technological Systems Management. Where there is technology, there is probably me! In my free time, I play video games such as League of Legends, Minecraft, and I spend some of my time playing badminton as well. In addition, I have recently grown to love reading and writing, as the show Lupin on Netflix pushed me to read the book that it is based on. One fun project I am currently working on is writing a memoir of my own, after I read Tara Westover's Educated. This memoir taught me that it is okay to write about our personal experiences, in a way that is educational and empowering for the readers. So far, I have written around one hundred and fifty pages, but there is so much more to write. So, if you see me around, please talk to me about anything, from video games to writing books! I look forward to meeting you all.
