Khirad Siddiqui headshot

"While I was interning at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), my Host made it a point to take time to guide me through my grad school applications. I let her know I was applying to PhD programs, and during the application workshops that the office staffed, she would often personally give me additional resources on GRE prep, CVs, personal statements, and the interview process. Without the help and understanding of everyone in the GSAS office, I would not have gotten into my current PhD program, nor been so prepared for the realities of graduate school when I got here."

Khirad graduated from the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development with a major in Applied Psychology. She is pursuing a PhD in Criminology, Law and Society.
