Definitely on the ENGG grind so if you see me walking around with 3 coffees then 1. Ignore and 2. Do not expect me to share. I’ll buy you guys drinks at our MESS events tho so SHOW UP! I’ll see you guys soon ;)

Tanim Adnaan 

Media Commissioner

Hailing from Dhaka,Bangladesh, I’m a proud member of MESS. About Me: I’m all about finding beauty in precision engineering and innovation. When I’m not buried in textbooks or tinkering in the lab, you’ll often find me exploring the great outdoors, hiking and camping, to recharge my engineering spirit. I joined this club to connect with like-minded individuals who share my passion for turning ideas into mechanical reality. Guilty pleasure: Shhh…dont tell anyone, but I have a sweet tooth that could rival Willy Wonka’s ice cream, chocolate, you name it. Engineering might be my love, but dessert is my weakness. I dont know if I should call it a hidden talent or not but I have a knack for producing beats, composing music and writing songs.

Hi everyone!! My name is farhana. I’m from Bangladesh and currently in my second year of engineering. One of my favourite hobbies is mobile photography and video editing. I also absolutely enjoy hanging out and having a great time. I’ll be a media commissioner of MESS this year, hoping to bombard you guys with some good events and fun times!!! Do say hi if you see me strolling around squeezing my eyes because I definitely forget my glasses everywhere. :p
