When Mehraan came to Stanford, he planned on majoring in Economics and American Studies. Having a strong interest in political matters and coming to Stanford from the Middle East largely informed that initial thought, but as he advanced through the Economics core, he found that he wasn’t passionate about that field. After some reflection Mehraan discovered the STS Politics and Policy concentration and immediately decided to pursue it. STS has afforded him the ability to critically reflect on the inner workings of society and has enabled him to pursue his interests in policy. Mehraan is currently doing policy research at the Mayor of Stockton’s office and plans to write an STS thesis on the political and physical infrastructures in Jordan.
