Hello! My name is Navid and I am a junior studying Business Administration. This is my third year a part of UWL and am beyond excited to come back this year as a Mentor! I was born in San Diego, but raised in the good ole PNW. I love to get involved on and off campus. Besides UWL, I have been a part of RCSA, Hall Council, Peer Review Board, FYP, Startup UW, Engineering Ambassadors, Student Technology Fee Committee, and Dawg Daze. I work as a Lead for UW-IT in Odegaard, and organize DubHacks, UW’s hackathon. I work with CoMotion and other groups on campus to promote innovation and entrepreneurship. I am a tech geek at heart and have interned with small local startups, Apple, and even NASA. In my free time I volunteer to edit and revise scholarship and college applications for high school and college students. I am passionate about cultivating positive social impact in the community and value inclusion, diversity, and accessibility in all the projects and groups I am a part of. I also love the outdoors, hiking and exploring is second nature to me. I am obsessed with pistachios and my favorite meal of the day is brunch as I have a list of 100+ breakfast joints in Seattle I can’t wait to share with y’all! UWL is such a phenomenal program and I am ecstatic to share my love of this community with you!
