Hello Everyone! My name is Balqisa. I am graduating senior majoring in Medical Anthropology and Global Health with a minor in diversity. This is my first ever Archeology class and I am excited to learn and break some of the preconceived notions I may have. Within Anthropology as a whole, my interests surround inequality and how that affects our health and wellbeing.
Outside of class, I love spending time with my friends and family. I also enjoy traveling and learning more about other cultures. In my free time, I love hiking, painting, and photography.
I’m a senior at UW, majoring in Anthropology. I am most interested in the intersection between anthropology and technology! I hope to use my coding background to further my knowledge of the human condition. In that same vein, I also have a particular interest in relationship between people and technology!
Life is pretty interesting for me right now. I’m in the probably relatable predicament where I suddenly need to put more time into a hobby or go stir-crazy in quarantine. Lately I find my time mostly consists of going on jogs, listening to musicals, playing video games, doting on my cat (named Dogg–don’t judge me, I was 8 when I named her) and knitting! Below is a picture of my latest project, a Lord of the Rings scarf for one of the friends I play video games with. I think the key to surviving quarantine for me can be summarized in two easy words: keep busy.
