Meet The Student Advisory Board

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
