Hi, HumBio! My name is Anima, and I’m a senior from Atlanta. I’m so excited to be one of your SAs this year! I switched my major to Human Biology midway through my sophomore year because I loved its flexibility and incredibly supportive faculty and staff. My area of concentration is Neurodevelopment and Disability, which lets me combine my two academic loves: neuroscience and disability studies. I hope to one day become a developmental-behavioral pediatrician and work with children with disabilities.
Outside of HumBio, I love to dance (with Stanford Bhangra and also just alone in my room). I volunteer as an EMT for Rock Medicine, providing non-judgmental medical care to concert-goers all over the Bay! I am also a research assistant in the Urban Lab, a scribe at Lucile Packard, and an editor of the Stanford Journal of Public Health. Last year, I was lucky enough to work on a passion project and co-found the Disability Studies Committee to put on Stanford’s inaugural Disability Studies Conference! In the past, I've worked as an English teacher for Project Dosti through the Haas Center, and as a Nepali Interpreter at the law school’s Immigrants’ Rights Clinic. In my free time, I love to watch trashy reality TV and eat lots of ice cream. I can’t wait to get to know you all, so feel free to stop by the SA office (or EBF) to chat anytime!
