With a passion for creative arts and a love for learning, Farheen is a student leader with an interest in the science of human interactions. Whether it be from drama or music, the joy she obtains from performing lies in the fact that art is open to interpretation, and it’s always interesting to see what unintended messages get communicated to the audience.
