Born and raised in Virginia’s suburbs, Zunera Mahmood is an avid fan of not going outdoors unless it is necessary. She attended small town schools where she learned that math was a fearsome subject. Zunera is currently attending NVCC and majoring in Social Science, a major that she doesn’t enjoy but chose on a whim. She plans on earning her Associates degree in Horticulture so she can raise sheep in the mountains, where she will inevitably be outside but with woolly sheep. Zunera is working hard to be a better person when it comes to outdoor activities and engaging with nature.
