Hi! My name is Ziva, and I'm a recent graduate from the University of Washington, studying Human Centered Design & Engineering.
During my time in school, I joined several communities focusing on international student mentorship and represented international student voices in various school committees, highlighting issues international students face on campus on a daily basis, especially as a queer woman of color.
I also devoted my time to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research. Other than assisting existing projects on engineering pedagogy in the department, my peers and I co-founded a research project focusing on resisting colonized systems in HCI.
