So many things going on at UW. You just have to keep your eye out and be willing to attend things that you don't know much about. Because I'm a class member, I often hear of events related to the class and the faculty. I got a notice of a showing of the documentary "Perween Rahman; the Rebel Optimist" with the filmmaker Mahera Omar attending. Put on by South Asian student student association. So we go. We're the only 'older' people there. We are welcomed. 20-30 people there. Delicious Samosas (fried potato vegtable things). Wonderful film about Pakistani architect and planner who worked in the poor areas of Karachi. Assassinated in 2013. Thoughtful Q&A afterwards. In a chemistry lecture hall.
