Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, I am a senior Anthropology major & Education minor passionate about educational equity and social justice. I love my jobs in the Admissions Office as a tour guide and the Access and Inclusion intern, and this year I am excited to also be one of the Study Abroad coordinators. I have been looking forward to adding Banter Blogger to my list of activities because it gives me another way to share both my experiences and the wonders of Bryn Mawr with prospective students and families, alumnae, and fellow community members.

Farah AlYaqout here, reporting for duty. Hailing from Kuwait, is Muslim, light blue class and is ready for senior year. But also… I’m not – you feel me? I am (inshAllah) majoring in Anthropology and English with a minor in Film Studies. I am a Hall Advisor in Radnor, which will be my first time venturing from my forever home in Erdman, and I am a member of the Honor Board. As it stands, theses have been pretty much the only things on my mind for a while but you’ll get to join me on my fabulous last journey at the Mawr. Here is to having a terrific time, a splendid semester, and other opportunities for overtly amusing alliterations.

Hello! My name is Devica Bhutani and I am from a town about 20 minutes from BMC! At Bryn Mawr, I play the violin in the Bi-Co Orchestra, take dance classes in the beautiful Pembroke Dance Studio, and am a customs person! I love to dance — I’m trained in ballet/pointe, tap, jazz, and contemporary. I also have a huge passion for Philly sports (you can often find me watching some game on my laptop!) I have not yet declared my major, but I am on the pre-med track and hope to minor in dance!

I am a junior majoring in Physics from Ridgewood, NJ. I am an active member of the Asian American Students Association, Bryn Mawr Concert Series, Re:Humanities, and ChoomBoom. In my free time, I like to experiment with dorm room cooking, discover new music on Pandora, and play tennis/badminton with friends. I have worked for an Asian American film festival in New York and for the Digital Curriculum Initiative at Bryn Mawr, but I found my calling in public health after an externship at the AIDS Institute. After Bryn Mawr, I hope to bridge the gap between medical and psychosocial needs by working as a nurse.

After trading the Metro for SEPTA and the DC area’s cherry blossoms for Bryn Mawr’s cherry blossoms, I’m now a sophomore planning to major in anthropology with a minor in film studies. I love reading (murder mysteries) and writing (poetry), and I’m involved in the Nimbus Literary Arts Magazine. I'm also the head sophomore Traditions Rep for my dorm, Rhoads South! I’ve been known to appear at other club meetings, but my passion for watching nature documentaries and old movies can sometimes get in the way. I also do photography (okay, Instagram) and costume/fashion design in my free time. I hope the future finds me making a difference.
