Iqra Sheikh is a storyteller from Brooklyn, NY. She was raised by a Latina mother in a Muslim household, and since questions the diversity of cultures and the social development of communities.
My experiences range from the liberal arts to stem. From joining UX/UI bootcamps, coding hackathons in college, interning at the Brooklyn Museum and working as a studio assistant for an artist I obtain the ability to communicate, collaborate, to strategize with a wide variety of people and fields.
Public Programming at the Brooklyn Museum unveiled my production and coordination skills. UX/UI Design provided me with the ability to explain complex concepts through design and user research. Taking the role as project management for the 2020 IBM hackathon challenge with the Borough of Manhattan Community College, inspired me to solve real-life problems with technology to create solutions. Lastly, working for Francine Tint provided me with the opportunity to learn the business, and marketing side of art dealership along with the roles of studio assistant such as taking inventory of the artists loft, helping stretch canvases, art handling and painting.
