Hello!  你好!! السلام عليكم ​  I'm Naima (pronounced Nye-ee-ma).  I'm a third-year tutor at Adams, and in addition to serving as the H-Entryway tutor with my boyfriend Christopher, I'm also a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Government.  Before starting my Ph.D., I served as a U.S. diplomat in Egypt and China.  I spent my weekdays implementing U.S. foreign policy, my weekends exploring exotic beaches and crowded open-air markets, and a few unexpected days dodging very, very large protests.  I'm American-born, but I spent my childhood in Cairo, Egypt....

Hey Adams!  I am a third-year MD-PhD student at Harvard Medical School currently in my first year as a PhD student in Population Health Sciences – Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H.

I'm a sixth(ish)-year doctoral student in the South Asian Studies department researching premodern Tamil devotional poetry.  Over the past ten years, I've been back and forth to Tamil Nadu to study these hymns as literary classics and cornerstones of daily religious practice.  I'm an animal lover, camping enthusiast, and avid crafter (my thought when I see something cool: how can I make that??).  My husband and I welcomed our baby girl, Ada Joan, into the world in April and we are excited for her to become a part of the Adams family!...
