Kiana Boroumand

University of Bristol Postgraduate Award, University of Bristol - Social Sciences

Kiana graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Sociology and English and a minor in Latin American Studies, and has since worked as a research assistant at the Johns Hopkins Poverty and Inequality Research Lab. As an undergraduate, she was the Executive Director of the Foreign Affairs Symposium, founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Johns Hopkins Undergraduate Law Review, Editor-in-Chief of Américas: The Johns Hopkins Journal of Latin American Studies, and a senator in the Student Government Association. For her honors thesis in sociology, she studied social welfare in the Nordic countries and conducted her fieldwork over two summers in Iceland and Denmark. Before that, she studied abroad in Havana, Cuba and at the London School of Economics, which sparked a desire to return to the UK for further study. Kiana will be earning an MSc in Socio-Legal Studies, which will provide a bridge between her background in sociology and the path she hopes to pursue in law. She is particularly excited to live in the vibrant city of Bristol, and looks forward to exploring Bristol’s famed street art, visiting its many galleries and museums and seeing plays at the Bristol Old Vic.
