Bardia Rahmani is a Sophomore in the School of Foreign Service (SFS) majoring in Science, Technology & International Affairs.

A reader and writer in his spare time, he hopes the city of Paris, which inspired Camus, Hemingway and Fitzgerald, will get him to do some writing of his own. Or at least provide a nice backdrop for a semester of writer's block. Bardia has spent 20% of his life in London, 30% in Ithaca, NY, and 50% in Cleveland, OH. He is 100% Persian.
