Campus Celeb: Sabrina Ghaus ’14

Sabrina Ghaus is involved in a number groups and organizations both on and off campus.  She’s an active member of Students for Justice in Palestine and also works for the Asian American Center at Tufts.  Much of Sabrina’s classes and activities focus on social justice for women and people of color.    “Professor Jean Wu is one of the best professors at Tufts,” she says.  Professor Wu teaches Race in America at Tufts, a class that’s known to change the perspectives of students who often come to college with an underdeveloped view of racial and ethnic matters.  She also spent her summer in Bangladesh interviewing women and other people for a senior project.

Sabrina’s a collegiette with many interests.  She’s a storyteller at heart.  Her documentary photography project was recently shown in Tufts’ art gallery for the ex-college’s Personal Narratives and Documentary Practices class.  She’s talented with the camera, especially for someone who’s self-taught.  But Sabrina’s artistic talents don’t stop with photography; she writes and draws as well!

Favorite Class at Tufts

The class I took with Professor Wu was great.  I love her!  

How do you relax?

I like to run and to the Loj when I can.  I like to be outdoors or camping.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Haha, I listen to different kinds of music.  I love this band called The Head and the Heart.  I really like oldies like Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.

What do you miss since you’ve come to Tufts?

I grew up in a diverse community, so Tufts I had to adjust to the population here (I’m not sure if I ever did get used to it, though).  I miss being around my family and my sister. 

What will you miss when you leave Tufts in May?

I’ve made some good friends here; I’m not ready to leave them yet!  We get together at each other’s houses and cook for each other all the time.  It’s really nice. 

Have any guilty pleasures?

I’m ready for spring, so I’ve been buying flowers from Harvard Square to liven up my apartment.  They’re fun and my roommates seem to like them.
