Profile:

Raimah is bilingual, speaking both Bengali and English, and has already visited multiple countries including Bangladesh and Mexico. She also speaks the language of computers as part of the programming club at her school. At each meeting the club attempts a new project, one of which was a video game. She enjoys playing basketball, soccer and lacrosse, but most of her time is taken up by reading — especially futuristic novels like The Hunger Games and Divergent. Raimah admires each member of her family, and hopes to display her dad’s laid-back approach to life as well as her mom’s excellent work ethic.
