In particular, while working on a video documentary course, Media and Ethnography Practice (ANTH 811) taught by Fabian Astore, Siti proved to be an efficient and dedicated team member. She always presented creative solutions to the obstacles we faced while filming or editing and always worked with a positive attitude. She's very open minded and flexible, making her easy to work with. I look forward to working with her one day in the future, as both our creative and professional interests fall in the same area."
