Amira Dhanoa is a senior studying Integrated Digital Media at Tandon and Social Entrepreneurship through Stern. During her first two years at the engineering school, Amira found it difficult to foster her artistic and creative side while pursuing a Civil Engineering degree. Since she made the transfer to IDM, Amira’s been balancing her left and right brains through her interactive installations and short films. Outside of school, she interns with BIGtoken by SRAX to empower users to take ownership over their digital identities and models.
