In the fall of junior year, Lamisa studied Politics at the University of Oxford; last summer, she interned at Social Accountability International, a labor rights organization based in New York.

She is fluent in Bengali, and has a working knowledge of Spanish and spoken Hindi. After graduating in May 2017, Lamisa hopes to be engaged in a role that will prompt her to dive into issues of policy-making and international affairs, and further develop her quantitative and qualitative research skills.
