Sophomore Salaam Awad learned how to do henna on herself and sisters during the pandemic. She discovered this passion almost a year ago after trying it out with a friend and has been doing it since.

“I enjoy doing henna because it is a form of art that can be therapeutic.” Awad said. “Since I was young, I’ve always had henna done on my hands for events and festivals and so it’s fun to actually do it myself.”

Awad looks forward to being able to do henna for more people after the pandemic.
