Katayon Ghassemi

Katayon Ghassemi is a junior studying Global Affairs in Yale College. Thanks in part to her interest in film and to her background as an Iranian-American growing up in the Midwest (go Kansas City Royals!), she is interested in the role media and communications play in creating narratives and molding perspectives—whether informed or misinformed. Likewise, thanks to her course work that introduced topics connecting law to the development of digital media, she is similarly interested in the questions and potential problems digital development faces when confronted by law and society. In addition to her involvement with VLP, Katayon is currently a co-captain of Yale’s collegiate figure skating club team and was a director within the Leadership Institute at Yale.
