Hi! My name is Lamiah Siddiq and I am currently a student at Watkinson School in Hartford, Connecticut, and this is my Global Studies portfolio. One of my core beliefs is that people should try to learn new things as often as they can. Through this portfolio, I hope to encompass this by experiencing and trying new things, whether that be going to forums about things I never thought I’d be interested in, or furthering my own interests. This includes everything from technology and its impact on the modern world, to public health, especially how COVID-19 has had a profound, long lasting influence globally. I hope that this portfolio includes a little bit of everything, so that there is something for everyone.
