Sabira Muhammad

Sabira MuhammadWhen Sabira Muhammad starts at The New School this fall, she plans on combining her love of theater with an interest in political science. She says that this unconventional pairing is in line with The New School’s philosophy of bringing new ideas to the table. “In my eyes, I see politics as theater. It is entertainment in a way,” says Sabira. She is passionate about a range of issues including climate change and the ways that she sees technology as preventing human connection. As she explores these topics, she is excited to “collaborate with other artists to bring new ideas to the table” and to have a fresh start that will inspire her to create. She says that she was drawn to The New School because of the school’s philosophy on innovation and collaboration, as well as the flexibility that it offers students. Sabira’s time at Duke Ellington School of the Arts has been shaped by self-discovery through theater. In creating her sophomore year composition, an end of year project where students direct and create their own theater piece, she says she was able to explore her life through theater. “I was able to tell my own story through the lens of a new story." Reflecting on her time at Duke Ellington, Sabira described the school as “an artist’s incubator,” and says that it sets students up for success regardless of which career they would like to pursue. “You get the academic training and the artistic training, which helps you to be well-rounded.” #DCPSGoesToCollege
