你好 حال شما چطور است؟
My name is Selina Lin Eshraghi, and I'm a student activist, creative, and engineer. Outside of the labels I chose 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 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, and that's where they'd be wrong. 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 ecosystem, 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.
I currently work toward this dream by learning every day. Whether it be shadowing photographers I reach out to, learning marketing and data analysis skills 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 gun violence prevention activism, serving as the Hook the Vote Director at the University of Texas at Austin, volunteering for Texas Student Television, as well as personal photography projects. Oh, and occasionally I model, I love spreading body positivity. :)
