Vice President –
Assalamualaikum! I’m currently finishing my third year pursuing a degree Biology. I’ve been involved in AMCC since my introduction to the U, serving as an active general body member, 2013-2014 Islam Awareness Week Committee Volunteer Coordinator, Event/Volunteer Coordinator Intern in 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 AMCC Volunteer Coordinator. I’ve also served as an officer in the Commuter Connection and as Events Coordinator (2014-15) and Public Relations (2015-16) for Students for Justice in Palestine. With those diverse experiences and their lessons, I am hoping to contribute to my community more as the Vice President inshaAllah. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am currently a junior studying Electrical Engineering. Last year I was on the board of AMCC as Historian and I was also the Islam Awareness Week Committee Co-Chair and the First-Year Mentoring Program Coordinator. I appreciate the nomination and I look forward to helping out on board next year insha’Allah.
