Cameron (Class of 2020) is studying Computer Science at Stanford, with an emphasis on biocomputation. While interested in STEM-related fields, Cameron also has a strong affinity for Iranian arts, culture, and languages. Born in the U.S., his parents maintained strong roots in Iran, thus, throughout his childhood, 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, thus Cameron has taken many Iranian Studies courses throughout his time at Stanford and has developed integral relationships with the Iranian Studies faculty. Cameron plans on culminating his studies and experiences into an interdisciplinary honors thesis or capstone about the experiences of diasporic queer Iranian artists throughout North America and Europe.
