你好 حال شما چطور است؟
My name is Selina Eshraghi, and I'm a student activist, creative, and engineer. Outside of these labels I’ve chosen for myself, I'm the product of immigrant parents, my mother hailing from China and my father from Iran. I find myself thriving at many crossroads, including that of disciplines, as I double major in Radio-Television-Film and Honors Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.
Most people hear about my double major and think I'm crazy, and to be honest, they wouldn't be wrong. They're also quick to tell me that there is no crossroads when it comes to film and engineering. I'm passionate about bridging the gap between the scientific community and the general public and educating my peers on the issues they vote on whether it be the state of our environment, new technologies such as genetic modification, or the value of space exploration. And as a creative, I think the best way to achieve this is via media, whether source from my passion for photography/videography, digital art, or music. You can check out my work in all of these areas under the portfolios tab.
I currently work toward this dream by learning every day. Whether it be shadowing photographers, learning marketing skill at my current internship, or even listening to my favorite science podcast (The Skeptics Guide to the Universe), I spend every day empowering myself through my education.
My current projects include serving as the Director of March for Our Lives Austin, a member of the Student Conduct Board at the University of Texas at Austin, volunteering for Texas Student Television, as well as personal photography projects.
