About Zarin Tasnim

Zarin is third year student completing a double major in social anthropology and human biology. If there were one word she would use to describe herself, it would be “introspective”. She believes that experiences shape the person that we become, so regular self-reflection, whether it’s on a bus ride or through writing in her journal, is a must. When she isn’t caught marathoning Law and Order: SVU or frantically taking notes for her classes, she can be seen reading books or covered in acrylic paint from an impromptu art session. She’s looking forward to gaining knowledge as an editor and spending quality time with the awesome team at The Underground.
