3. Emily Carrero, GS’21
4. Hafsa Khawaja, GSAS'21
“Coming to an entirely new continent to study, oceans away from family and familiarity, is never quite easy, writes Khawaja. "But ending up in the same program as three brilliant, kind, intelligent, and wonderful women — Aaisha Salman (GSAS '20), Sarah Malik (GSAS '20), and Ramsha Siddiqui (GSAS '21) — gave me a community of comfort, friendship, joy, and love that I will hold onto for an entire lifetime and that I will always remember my graduate school experience by. I am tremendously grateful to have encountered these three incredible individuals at Columbia and in the city of New York. These people and these places were and will always be my home away from home.”
