Why does Tumblr see an influx of love poems between 11pm and 2am? Why do we have major breakthroughs in the shower? Why did Sam Smith attribute his four Grammy wins to his previous heartbreak? Nusrat explores the different birthplaces of creativity, from mindfulness to sadness, and how we can apply our creativity to do good in the world.
Nusrat Ahmed ‘17, is a junior from the Bronx, NY majoring in Anthropology. She is passionate about children's rights, women empowerment, and entrepreneurial development. In the past, she has interned for Lawyers for Children, was a counselor for the 2015 Women in STEAM education camp in Rwanda, and lead two service projects in Bangladesh, an arts program for street children and the building of a sewing center which provides training and employment to over 400 mothers. This summer she will be interning with Goldman Sachs in Singapore, volunteering with JAAGO, a non-profit in Bangladesh that aims to eradicate poverty through free education, creating a teaching module based on mindfulness and personal development, and working with BetterStories, a social impact business dedicated to propelling Bangladesh and its people forward through the power of service entrepreneurship. She will also be researching the experiential side of Sufism in Morocco for her senior thesis.
