Dana majors in English Literature. She is of Iraqi origin, but it’s never just that. She asks questions like, “what does it mean to exist” and “what is death really?” She has a darkness that strives to appreciate the “unknown” and to love the beauty behind madness. Nonetheless, she enjoys “human” things like reading, Rock music, long night drives, the desert’s vast space and solitude. About 70% of her body is Redbull, and the other 30% is French Fries. Finally, her obsession with Latin phrases might cause her migration to the past. Sincerely, Memento Mori.

Aisha uses being a Literature major as a way to delve into other interdisciplinary areas of life. She is very obsessed with the ideas of post-humanism and psychoanalysis in how they make sense of the world we live in. She also has a very keen interest in Art, History and Art History. Avocados are a fundamental aspect of who she is, particularly her inability to successfully plant them. She thrives on ridiculous, annoying puns and the Big Enough meme. Her goals in life include one day mastering French and being somewhere that encourages her to continue learning.

She is currently busy planning world domination through kindness and cups of free karak.
Salma is an English Literature major with a minor in Translation Studies. She is sarcastic but sincere. A procrastinator but hardworking. Thoughtful but spontaneous. Extroverted with a low social battery. Recently, she developed a growing interest in love. She is often seen asking professors and students what is love, whether they’re in love, how they know, and what fills the gap between love and language. The things she appreciates most in life are music, food, good weather, good people, and raw, honest conversations that reveal the human being underneath. Also, roller coasters.
