Sidra Ijaz (2016)
Sidra is attending Stanford University and studying Computer Science.
I’ve been awarded the Coca Cola Gold Scholarship and was selected for the NYS PTK First Academic Team. At Stanford, I work as the Transfer Program Assistant, and for extracurricular activities, I’m on the board of Muslim Student Union, and I am a member of Women in Computer Science.
I’m very grateful to RBWN for their RBWN Scholarship as they helped make the transition to Stanford much easier, as there is a high cost associated with not only tuition, but traveling and moving from Rockland to the Bay Area. This scholarship helped alleviate some of the weight associated with college so that I could have more time to focus and plan for my studies.
