Adiya is a rising sophomore living in Winthrop House from Astana, Kazakhstan. On campus, she is involved in event-planning through College Events Board and the First-Year Social Committee. When she’s not learning how to method act, building mobile app prototypes, and discussing urban planning for her classes, she enjoys hosting friends for get-togethers and painting nights. In her free time, she enjoys dancing, exploring the surrounding area, and making art for different organizations on campus. Her favorite study spot on campus is the Barker Center cafe because of its location, good coffee, and abundance of natural light.
