February 2018 DEI Spotlight - Kazi Najeeb Hasan

February 2018 DEI Spotlight

Name: Kazi Najeeb Hasan

Affiliation/Title: Graduate Student

Degree(s): Bachelor of Architecture C.RED; Master of Architecture Candidate, 2019

Home Country: Bangladesh

Language(s) Spoken: Bangla, English

Gender Identity: Male

Racial Identity: Bengali

Favorite food: Biriyani

What are other identities that you would like to share? Muslim

Favorite book/author and why: "Brave of Heart" by Habibul Alam, Bir Protik and "Maa" by Anisul Hoque. I crave a good conversation, and I love connecting, more so with people different from me.

Favorite thing to do when not at TC: Talking to friends & colleagues

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you?: Our parents’ generation has seen numerous wars and armed conflicts. Our generation has been seeing and will continue to see more intolerance in contrast. That leads me more than ever to believe in forming stronger connections with people. All people.

DEI Contribution/Highlight: I am currently conspiring with a fellow student for a studio layout at the college more conducive to conversations, as well as envisioning ways to make minority student groups in the college better represented through their food and culture. At the very core, I am always keen in just reaching out to fellow colleagues and classmates in whatever form possible, as much as graduate architecture workload permits.
