Alumni Profiles

Rima Tahini

When she graduated from Brandeis, Rima Tahini ’16, who is from Sierra Leone and now lives in Nigeria, had a clear career goal: to make a contribution to African culture.

Jackson Holbert

Poet Jackson Holbert ’17 says that, unlike the “famous triple majors,” he entered his first year at Brandeis laser-focused, ready to pursue the only thing he felt he wasn’t “terrible at.”
