Introducing our Summer Blogger: Ayesha Sharma

Ayesha Sharma, a rising Junior at Bates College, has joined the Urban Democracy Lab staff as our summer blogger.  Watch out for her dispatches from New York City in the coming weeks.  Ayesha describes herself as follows:

“I’m a second generation Indian-American studying Anthropology and Gender Studies at Bates College. I’m most intellectually and emotionally driven by inequality affecting a variety of humans and non-humans. While difficult to name a few, some of the impacts of broad and problematic systems which trouble and motivate me are emotional violence, and the loss and robbery of personal identity through forced assimilation. I use they/them and she/her pronouns. ”

Welcome, Ayesha!
