Chemical Engineering major
DeAnza College

Hello! I'm Umme Zainab Ahmad, and I'm a sophomore currently pursuing my Associate's for Transfer in mathematics/science. I hope to transfer to a 4-year institution in Fall 2025 to study chemical engineering with an emphasis in biotechnology. I am very interested in researching the cause of disease and I want to do my part in creating optimal cures for most diseases with minimal side effects and maximum efficacy.

I'm very excited about making a large-scale impact in healthcare and health-tech. I'm also passionate about leadership and entrepreneurship in the context of health-tech. I enjoy painting, travelling, and watching movies in my free time.
