Uncovering Opportunities MARYUM ALI 15 Maryum Ali 15 entered Rensselaer as a transfer student in her sophomore year majoring in EMAC with a minor in marketing. Her primary interest is marketing design and communications. I took a course in digital filmmaking and got involved with a nonprofit organization run by RPI professors called the Sanctuary for Independent Media said Ali. I entered a video competition that posed the question What would you do with a trillion dollars I did a piece on working with women who were victims of domestic violence. This kind of opportunity is what made Rensselaer so special for Ali. Rensselaer is the kind of place where if you talk to professors and do a little digging you can find that there is so much that is available to students she said. Here you can get a taste of the real world and mingle with professionals. Thats a powerful thing.
