Hey everyone! My name is Nada and I’m a sophomore from Paterson, NJ pursuing a Neuroscience major with an Anthropology minor. On-campus, I’m involved with the Chesick office as an FLI student leader and I’m the Haverford Questbridge Chapter President for the 2021-22 school year. In my free time, I enjoy journaling, writing (just short stories and poetry for now!), spending time with friends, and learning to create different origami figures. I also find a lot of joy in getting to know my Haverford peers one-on-one, so if you’re ever down for a chat, feel free to swing by the OAR!
Pendo Kamau (she/her), is a sophomore from the suburbs of Philadelphia pursuing an Anthropology major and a Cities minor. Outside of being an OAR intern, she is involved in Horizons, Melanines, the Committee for Social Responsibility and is a Mellon Mays Fellow. She has worked in Lutnick Library in the Quaker and Special Collections, which sparked her curiosity relating to underrepresented Haverford student narratives that she intends to bring to her time at the OAR. Over her time at Haverford, the OAR has helped her develop time management strategies through academic coaching with Raquel as well as continues to be a peaceful place to study. She enjoys discovering new music (bonus points if it's 90s house), shopping, playing tennis and looks forward to meeting you in the OAR!
Erica Kaunang (she/hers) is a senior from Queens, NY pursuing an Anthropology Major with minors in Visual Studies and English. Outside of the OAR, Erica is involved with Horizons, the Writing Center, and the Women of Color House. Lately, her favorite pastimes are painting, skating, and volleyball (though she’s definitely not a pro at any of these). While she’s used the OAR for its workshops and organization materials, what has been the most helpful and impactful is meeting with Raquel for figuring out time management, advice on navigating imposter syndrome, and finding a space to be heard and affirmed as a student here at Haverford.
Shiza Ranamagar (she/hers) is a sophomore from Queens. NY, interested in pursuing a Sociology major on the pre-health track. She is committed to creating a welcoming environment where everyone feels seen and heard. Back at home, Shiza loves working with her local Nepali and AAPI organizations. On campus, she works as a FLI student leader to support the FGLI community. She also works as an Access and Diversity Intern in the Admissions Office and has lots of fun conducting research in the Fairman biology lab. Aside from that, Shiza is a plant mom. She also enjoys lifting, cooking, going on evening walks, and exploring Philly with friends. When she was a returning first year, she went to Brian for academic coaching, and learned how to better manage her time, prioritize, and establish balance. She’s excited to work with you and show you the various resources available at Haverford to help you succeed!
Hello! My name is Zakiyyah (she/her), and I’m a senior from Lee’s Summit, MO, pursuing a major in Biology with a Health Studies minor on the pre-med track. On campus, I am involved with Haverford’s QuestBridge chapter, the Mentoring and Student Teaching (MAST) Program, and the Biology Student Group; outside of the Office of Academic Resources, I also work in the Office of Admissions and Lutnick Library. In my free time, I enjoy cross-stitching, crossword puzzles, spending time with loved ones, and listening to music—specifically Omar Apollo, Brockhampton, and movie soundtracks! I hope to see you in the OAR space soon :)
