I was born. Some time passed. A Nobel Prize winner handed me a midterm. I answered the questions. Some time passed. Now, I’m producing a podcast. Life's w e i r d . My name’s Amina and I like exploring the lives of minorities I find interesting. Who am I? A Black. Muslim. Woman. A Nigerian American. A Princeton University graduate ('15) and a molecular biologist by degree, not by trade. Up until college, my life's goal was to become a hungry "writer" slash less hungry journalist (the latter ...

If you’re in need of a mentor, Anna’s got you. This is part one in a series. Not only does the White House come up a number of times (e.g. one of her mentors is a former aide), but I also am reminded, with literally every response, why Anna Gifty is such a disruptor and astoundingly beneficial at that. She hasn’t failed to inspire me and after ...…
 
What is “double consciousness?” WEB Du Bois branded black consciousness as such. Not only must you be aware of how you see yourself, you must also be aware of how others see you. Not only is this essentially the entire prelude to episode 39, “G e n e r a t i o n a l w e a l t h” but it’s interesting that while this resides in his book, “The Sou ...…
 
Yes, two in one (week). 🎙 A monologue, yes: but with REAL advice from someone who in high school was accepted everywhere they applied, except Harvard, where I was waitlisted. It's college application season so I thought this would be useful for any high school seniors/students/college applicants out there. Also, I give three important pieces of ...…
 
Podcasting is like being on the moon, conducting an excavation, knowing full well the wind will have carried away your breath before you reach the bottom. Because you need a space suit. If you understand this metaphor (hint: alludes to a certain epidemic), subscribe. This week, I delve into a pit into which we need? to delve. That pit is a myth ...…
 
I can say that even if I weren’t one of two who had to listen to this episode in its entirety before hitting “publish,” I would still listen to this. This is coming from someone who can be wildly stingy with her time. Because that’s always going to zero. This is part three in a series with Misbah Uraizee of Facebook, which apparently gives you ...…
 
How is this episode unlike other episodes? Aside from the fun you can tell I clearly had with producing, it was and is refreshing to hear the blend of humility and power in Mottsmiths' words. I will likely provide a transcript later so return to this spot if you prefer reading. Although in honesty, there are some things that sound different spo ...…
 
Why is it called work-life balance when your life, to echo Prince Ea, came first? This is part two of three with Misbah Uraizee, Product Manager at Facebook. She is a graduate of Yale and was formerly at Microsoft, developing scifi-meets-Harry Potter-esque AR/VR. The person writing this is the host of Skiveo Radio, Amina, me! As a product of Pr ...…
 
This is part one of three in a series with Misbah Uraizee of Facebook, which focuses on magnificent turns of events and her journey into tech and product management as well as some of the challenges facing social media users today. Misbah is a Product Manager @ Facebook working on Newsfeed & Stories. Previously she was at Microsoft working on H ...…
 
This is part one of a three-part or tripartite, if you talk fancy, series with Rosie Mottsmith, a force, like that which bursts forth from a cannon, to be reckoned with or with which to reckoned, if, again, you're a fancy talker. Also, before you go, subscribe to the Skiveo n e w s l e t t e r . It's mad dope. Haven't you heard. Follow @aminasa ...…
 
New season, who dis? Subscribe to the Skiveo Letter. And this podcast tbh. Support creators. Not their ego. But their courage. At least mine. My courage. That could have gone to either antecedent, implied or otherwise. Alright. Subscribe! Music by Ryan Little - excuse my french. - https://thmatc.co/?l=557D6A57 Music by Löwe - Clear Sky - https: ...…
 
This is a reupload as part two was posted for both episodes 51 and 52. So, here’s part one, the intended 51. Now back to the previously siphoned summary. All this is not to be annoying or boastful. What’s the point of bragging when nothing happens individually. I’m so flying-too-close-to-the-sun grateful for your having joined me on this weird, ...…
 
This episode is part two of two with Nur Banu. And I’ve read some of her blog and what I’ve read is excellent so this is not an empty recommendation. Also, check out “97 Science-Backed Tips for Improved Productivity and Creativity” on Medium, written by me, someone who had the time to do something like that.…
 
The title is cumbersome so I can forgo a summary, right. For Nur Banu's blog, “In the Belly of the Fish”, click here. For Jia Jiang's TED talk, “What I Learned from 100 Days of Rejection”, click here. And for the research showing that 91.4% of the worries of a sample of individuals with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) did not come to fruitio ...…
 
I won’t give away a lot here; if you’re interested in an intriguing preview, check out the latest post @aminasalmost30 on Instagram. And Celene Ibrahim’s latest book, “One Nation, Indivisible...” It’s also available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And my approximately 20 page opus, available on Medium: “97 Science-Backed Tips for Improved Produ ...…
 
A new series. Ties in seamlessly with tip 85 of “97-Science Backed Ways to Improve Productivity and Creativity,” written by me and available on Medium. 85. Apparently, there’s research indicating that being poor, being economically burdened impairs cognition and that impairment is like a 13-point drop in IQ or like the difference between chroni ...…
 
You have AOC, I have AC. Jk. We all have both because this week I have the as wonderful latter on Skiveo Radio. This is someone who knew me, the host, even before there was a Skiveo Radio and even before I knew I would be knee deep in this Instagram caption at a loss for words. (This now LA-based Latina was partially in charge of me and others ...…
 
🎙46: From Civil Law to the Supreme Court? Talking to AC about her application essays, sellouts, and Santa Barbara This is part 2 of my conversation with the Mexican, Princeton, #HarvardLaw #grad, @aacoronita currently clerking for a f e d e r a l judge and yes, I mention #theoffice again. 🤷🏾‍♀️By Alicia and Amina
 
Whether you’re business-minded, art-minded, coding-minded…or simply *veni-vidi-vici-minded, this could steer you in a far less burnout-y direction. “97 Science-Backed Tips for Productivity and Creativity” is now available at the only non-podcast link in my insta linktree. No newsletter sign up necessary. No exchange of any kind is necessary. No ...…
 
This is part 2 of Friday’s episode, episode 42 with Anna! I don’t know what else to write so I’m just copy-pasting the intro to a nearly 20-page document in which I’ve done a thing. Keep reading. tl:dr T H E R E I S A F R E E D O C O F 9 7 S C I E N C E-B A C K E D W A Y S T O B E M O R E P R O D U C T I V E + C R E A T I V E Whether you’re bat ...…
 
You may be wondering, "this episode is different from the last one." To me, they're not. I love writers. But I also love, at least the idea of, money. And Cornel West, whose voice makes a cameo. JFK is mentioned. Obama is mentioned. And not like or unlike them, Anna Gifty is someone to be reckoned with. Un-creepily stalk her twitter, @itsafrono ...…
 
Her book is called Nothing to Summit and I read an excerpt at the beginning. In the spirit of this moving episode, I think you, listener, should write a book. In the words of one of my favorite thinkers (yes, I have a favorite thinker): “Making a book is still a personal work. As personal a work as it was 20 or 50 or 100 years ago. Not only tha ...…
 
What would it feel like to work at the same place that rejected you three times? And how would you feel if your coworkers, unbeknownst to you, rallied and convinced management to get you hired for that same position causing you to become a literal historical moment. I spoke with Tahera Rahman, the interviewed-by-former-Fox-News-correspondent-Me ...…
 
The pace picks up around the 8 minute mark: and if you listen all the way to end, there’s a serious surprise. It was recently reported that the amount of Carbon in the atmosphere has reached 415 ppm, not seen since the Pleiocene period. That’s dinosaurs, right? I talk to Climate activist or more accurately, khalifah, Mona Bennani, an NYU gradua ...…
 
Don't wear a lot of perfume. Last year (2018, for those reading this far into the future iA), the CodingSisters asked me two pivotal questions. Follow them on instagram (@codingsisters). The audio isn’t the best but in my weakish defense 2018 was the first year of this show. For references, visit www.skive0.com/urscienceminority Credit: Isa G " ...…
 
Fake wokeness has a way of circulating itself in the interwebs. After actually learning about Kardashian West's decision to pursue law, realizing the clemencies for which she's pled, and facing the task of typing words in these episode description slots, I'm reminded of real wokeness. Since she is on the path to becoming a lawyer (she's current ...…
 
This is part two...wait, keep reading after this iTunes engineer-implemented cutoff--this gets interesting...of the entrepreneurs panel I attended at last year's she roars conference at my alma mater; it mainly consists of a QA session. Ok. Bye. To get access to that which non-subscribers don't, join the newsletter--it could help you with your ...…
 
lowkey freaking out…or high key… In October, 2018 I went to the She Roars conference at my alma mater, after originally planning to miss it, ignore it. Do anything else. Boy, was rsvping days before the deadline worth it. Or should I say gurrl, was rsvping days before the deadline worth it. This is the third of this series. To paraphrase, quote ...…
 
Listen to Rogue and me go deep into some of the most profound quotes we've heard. It gets slightly religious-y--Jummah Mubarak or happy Friday.By Amina and Rogue
 
For references and clarifications to that which was mentioned in the episode, click through. Instead of a summary, I'm dedicating this space to victims, of any color, in any place. This episode covers so much valuable information. Before I delve into what that is I want to say the CodingSisters were my first guests (episodes 7 and 8 and “36.5”) ...…
 
This episode features segments from shows with four past guests and on top of that discusses Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, marshmallows, my wardrobe, and scientific evidence for how to empower yourself--all in under 25 minutes; how did I get so efficient..By Amina, Sara, Sofia, Jenna, Anna
 
There was caffeine in me. “Colonialism was a startup." a profound statement by Somnath Bhatt. I'll update this space with links to references; meanwhile, enjoy the narratives, dose of research, and mind-quaking revelation that doubles as a work/study hack.By Amina
 
You can watch Elaine Welteroth’s electrifying clip through the link in the accompanying blog post. In this episode, another in the millennial burnout series, I explain how another one of the internet black holes in which I found myself led me to a serious conclusion or rather, paradigmatic shift informed by cultural phenomena affecting young st ...…
 
Before I get into it, check out launchgood.com/Newcastle because they're in desperate need of help. Amelia is a Ph.D. student at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, MD. An instructor for both graduate and undergraduate students at Columbia University and Johns Hopkins, Amelia pioneered and taught the first a ...…

We’ve all come a long way. Reupload from 1/18/19. In October, 2018 I went to the She Roars conference at my alma mater, after originally planning to miss it, ignore it. Do anything else. Boy, was rsvping days before the deadline worth it. Or should I say gurrl, was rsvping days before the deadline worth it. This is the first of this series. To ...…
 
Approximate time stamps: 2:55 Jenna Chia, now in Norway, discusses how long it took her to graduate, what she double-majored in, the size of her school, UW-Madison in Wisconsin, and how it made her feel compared to high school. I talk about the size of Princeton and how I think it makes some or all Princetonians feel. 6:45 Expectations: we both ...…
 
Before I delve into what’s up, here's a short quality disclaimer. Hi! I'm Amina and I was new to podcasting so the quality on my side and my guests' side is not as good as it's been in recent episodes. I reinvited the CodingSisters for episode 32, in case you're interested in a higher audio quality discussion, albeit of different, somewhat rela ...…
