    Fatima's Bio:
    I’m a junior majoring in Biochemistry and Biology. I love being involved on campus. Our community is welcoming and full of opportunities for everyone. I’m the co-president of our school’s Amnesty International chapter, and the Editor in Chief of The Cable, the school newspaper. I tutor and mentor through Student Support Services. I am also a Chemistry lab and Dignitas teaching assistant. I’m very passionate about human rights and never afraid to be myself. I find that I am able to freely express myself through the activities I’m involved in.

Politics schmolitics. Who needs em?

The past few months have already been overwhelmed with talk about the election (which doesn’t seem like that near in the future), but lately with the Iowa Straw Poll results, it’s hard to not talk about who’s running for the Presidential position.

Michele Bachmann is the possible candidate that has stuck out the most to me (to my chagrin, however, anyone who knows me could guess my opinion on her). From the skits about her on Saturday Night Live to her awkward presence in TV interviews, she hasn’t struck me as someone I should seriously consider as a President of our country. I’d kinda hoped other Americans wouldn’t take her seriously, either. But her popularity is undeniable, and strange, to say the least.

Frequently I read the New Yorker online. For anyone who isn’t familiar with it, it has an awesome variety of subject matter and writing styles. I found this article about Michele Bachmann on the site that had some 20,000 reader recommendations attached to it. Despite my disdain for her, I decided to read it, and feel like I now have a new outlook on this campaign. I can’t say it’s a better outlook, but it’s good to expand our horizons whenever we can ;).

So read and enjoy!
