Welcome Sakina Pasha, who provided you with both baked goods and wristbands.
Name, Hometown, School: Sakina A Pasha, Phoenix/Las Vegas/LA, Barnard College
Claim to fame? Just received the honor of being on the cover of Barnard Magazine the semester I graduated, which means my face is awkwardly in peoples mailboxes, on coffee tables, and recycling bins (STOP THROWING AWAY RECYCLABLES-YOU WILL KILL THE POLAR BEARS). I’m President of Knickerbocker Motorsports (Formula SAE)- the AWESOME racecar team on campus, I’m OBSESSED with SGA and been involved with it for 4 years, I’ve been an intro bio TA for two years,I ended up getting 2nd place in assassins being disavowed the entire game, with no one alive on my team, and without killing anyone *cough* greg duchard you died before spring break and claiming to kill someone who is in charge of checking tickets during the Hoodie Allen concert is BS and not a real kill *cough* and I can usually be found in the cadlab/basement of mudd or lying on my floor eating cookies
Where are you going? BACK TO THE SUNSHINE (aka the west coast) to get my Vitamin D on and possibly do ALL THE PASTRY CHEFING before saving the world :)
Three things you learned at Columbia:
Back in my day… The war on fun wasn’t managed via swipe access, tunnels were open, roofs weren’t overpopulated, and all my friends were older than I was.
Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I feel instant happiness from cooking and feeding people so I live to make all my friends chubs. I have probably spammed your fb with invitations for GHR or Tree Lighting, or gave you one of those BC/CC/GS/SEAS wristbands during homecoming week.
Write a CU Admirers post to anyone or anything at Columbia: To my wonderful FSAE family, thank you for four years of amazing racing, building, teaching, learning, and dedication to this team. Though many of you have challenged me more than anything else I have ever encountered, I doubt I would have survived college without you all. You all do not get nearly enough credit for the work you do, from the all nighters in the shop, to the endless time spent designing and redesigning the car, you all are phenomenal and have contributed to something far greater than a racecar, you’ve all built a legacy. This past year you all accomplished more than the team has in the past decade and I couldn’t be prouder! I can’t wait to see what you all do next year with the KMR14 at competition!! THANK YOU FOR BUILDING COOL ASS CARS!!! WITHOUT YOU, ALL THE BIDDIES WOULD BE LOST. #cookiegrams4life #becauseracecar #2ndplaceinCOST….ALSO, AYAN NASIR I LOVE YOU <3
Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Despite my recent enlightenment about the joys of the absence of cheese from the lives of people who suffer from hypolactasia, I sadly don’t think I could ever give up something that can provide me as much pleasure in public that is socially-acceptable as cheese could.
One thing to do before graduating: Take the time to explore campus and the city. Stay up all night just talking to someone even if youre supposed to be finishing an assignment, don’t worry, you’ll get it done. Get to know at least one of your professors. Hang out with kids in Formula SAE! Join student government for at least one year. Don’t let the name of your college define your experience.
Any regrets? I wonder what my life would be like if I was as consistent with school as I am with my student activities involvement, said NO ONE EVER. Don’t forget that grades are just a letter and one assignment won’t destroy your future, but one experience or activity could open up a world of opportunity. I do, however, wish I had spent more time exploring the city and less time being afraid of the weather here #AZprobs
