Here’s the second in our collaboration with People of NU
to feature stories from seniors in the Northwestern Class of 2014. Meet Weinberg senior Mariam Gomaa.
Q: “What’s one piece of advice you’d share with others?”
A: “Don’t let other people, kind of, put you down or tell you that you can’t do something because I think for me, I’m a Creative Writing and Bio double major, it’s like really weird. And a lot of people told me at the beginning that, you know like, why would you do that? Or, like, you can’t do that, that’s so much. Or they don’t make sense together…I just don’t believe in that. I think that if you really want to do everything, you can. I’m a photographer and a writer, I volunteer… I do a lot of stuff and it’s never taken away from my experience in any way. It’s only made me feel like a more full human being.”
