Meet the Graduate Assistants: Kiran Williams

And now we’ve come to our last Graduate Assistant at the iSchool Help Desk for the Spring 2023 semester and the end of our showcase (until Fall 2023)! Today’s second GA featured is Kiran Williams. We asked Kiran about her career aspirations, hometown favourites, and her favourite place to hang on campus.

Kiran is a native of Princeton, New Jersey, where she loves how green the state is, how much farmland there is, and how beautiful its nature is. Kiran is our only first-semester, first-year MSLIS student at the iSchool, interested in pursuing a career as a research librarian in an academic library or special collections; she wants to connect BIPOC students with rare resources after graduation.
