Brief Biographical Sketch:


Hello, I’m Zenaat [ZI-nats]. I’m currently an undergraduate student who intends to major in Mechanical Engineering at Yale University. Though originally born in Kwara State, Nigeria, I have lived in the United States for most of my life. As of recently, I've had a strong affinity for history, systems biology, and physics. But when I am not spending my time enriching myself academically, I can often be found watching films, reading, and or building terrariums.
