Cameron (Class of 2021) is studying Mathematical and Computational Science at Stanford. Cameron has a strong affinity for Iranian arts, culture, and languages. While born in the U.S., he was privileged with biannual, summer-long visits to his grandparents’ homes just outside of Esfahan. With such close proximity to one of the cultural capitals of Iran, he developed a devotion to retaining all aspects of his heritage, and has taken many Iranian Studies courses at Stanford, developing meaningful relationships with the Iranian Studies faculty and staff. It is thanks to his time in Iran and proximity to customs and culture and home that he feels deeply passionate about the modern diasporic Iranian identity.
Cameron looks forward to culminating his studies and experiences into an interdisciplinary honors thesis or capstone about the experiences of Iranians living in North America
