Farah Z. Ahmad is a proud Bangladeshi-American Midwestern social butterfly and science enthusiast. Growing up in a family of professional scientists and born storytellers, in her early years Farah toyed between following in the family footsteps or being a writer, eventually finding an obscure middle ground in politics and public policy that she loves to this day. Farah is currently working at the federal level on sustainable community economic development and anti-poverty initiatives in rural and tribal communities. She holds a Master of Public Affairs degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations. Always a champion for the underdog, Farah highly respects and advocates for the misunderstood city pigeon.
