Amirah Fadhlina

Amirah Fadhlina is a 21 year old student from Banda Aceh, Indonesia. She is currently finishing her last semester at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. She is pursuing two majors at Earlham College, which are Human Development & Social Relations and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Amirah pursues these majors because both of these disciplines provide a foundation for critical thinking, specifically in relations to racial justice, gender equality, and institutional oppression. Outside of her academic life, Amirah is a self-taught musician, singer-songwriter, and a photographer. She plays drums and guitars, and is a part of multiple bands that showcase a variety of genres. Amirah also performs as a solo artist, and is currently working to produce her first album. Amirah aspires to become a musician and a social worker in the future, where she strives to create stability and support for marginalized people, as well as performing as an independent musician. Amirah has done community service and voluntary work in Singapore, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, East Timor, and the United States, as well as traveled to other countries like Vietnam, Malaysia, Jordan, Germany, France, and the Czech Republic. Her dream is to create a Non-Profit Organization that provides a creative and empowering space for women, LGBTQ communities, ethnic minorities, and underprivileged people. Amirah currently resides in the United States, where she will begin a year-long voluntary service with a Non-Profit Quaker Organization in Philadelphia next year.
