Arunima Jamwal

Class of 2021, Sociology/Anthropology


I’m a child of Northwestern lands through and through: I was born and raised in Punjab/Himachal and moved to Portland by myself at 18. Spending quality time with rivers, flowers, and mountains makes me feel right at home. This year I’m also LC’s Vice President of Student Academic Affairs, and the Sustainability & Climate Justice Research Intern at the Sustainability Department. I like to build communities that value reciprocity, care and self-reflexivity! Running hilly trails, training on inclines, or leading CO’s lovely meditation walks helps me cool off after a stressful day. I’m a big fan of pour-over coffee, sunshine, silliness, and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
