March 2021: Arufa Hossain

Arufa explains that, as a child, her father owned a small deli and she was exposed to crime and violence in the neighborhood. These experiences made her “passionate about patterns, interactions, and a sense of ‘flow’ in society” and led to her decision to study criminology.

Arufa isn’t sure what she will do after graduation but she would like to work with families and youth, perhaps with Child Protective Services or a similar agency.
