Meet The Student Advisory Board
Chief Executive Officer
I'm Zakiya Lakha, a senior and the Chief Executive Officer for ADDA. I'm majoring in religion, but I first took the HTML/CSS class to broaden my skills, and after I learned about all the work ADDA does, I joined SAB! ADDA has helped me develop skills that I may have never been exposed to if I hadn't joined. The ADDA environment is always a supportive and encouraging one, and we always welcome more people to join and be a part of ADDA!
Chief of Finance
I am Jessica Moreira' 22 and I am the Chief of Finance for ADDA. At Barnard, I am majoring in Economics and minoring in Education. I took the HTML/CSS class in the Fall 2019 semester and after gaining these cool coding skills, I decided that I wanted to join SAB as I was impressed by the work that ADDA does. I have been able to grow both professionally and personally at ADDA and I recommend it if you are looking for a place to challenge yourself, learn and flourish!
Chief of Agency
My name is Syeda Anjum '21 and I am the Chief of Agency for ADDA. Double majoring in film studies and psychology has taught me the interdisciplinary nature of technology in all fields, and this inspired me to further engage with the ADDA community. ADDA gave me the confidence to explore visual design with code, and I hope to encourage other women on this path of empowerment.
Chief of Academy
I am Cindy Espinosa '22 and Chief of Academy for ADDA. I'm studying Computer Science. I was unsure if I wanted to pursue tech, because I didn't see anybody like me in this field, but ADDA solidified my skills, and gave me the confidence to continue on this career path wherever it takes me.
Chief of Marketing
My name is Mae Viccica '21 and I am the Head of Marketing for ADDA. I'm majoring in Political Science and joined the Student Advisory Board after taking the HTML/CSS class because I wanted to get more involved. I love the supportive environment that ADDA provides and hope that more students feel inspired to join us! ADDA helped me grow my skills in an area I had never been exposed to before, and I am proud to support our mission.
Chief of Admissions
My name is Jasmin, and I'm Chief of Admissions at ADDA. I'm in the class of 2022, majoring in Political Science and minoring in Sociology. Prior to becoming a Student Advisory Board member, I joined the Agency as a developer after taking the HTML/CSS class. I love that ADDA provides a welcoming and empowering space for women to learn coding skills and get experience in the field of web development. I think learning how to code is really useful, and I would encourage all Barnard students to take our classes!
