Graduation Year: 2022
High School Experience: Public school in West Des Moines, IA with a graduating class of about 750 students. There were a lot of students who planned to go to college but a lot of them decided not to go.
First-Generation College Student: No
Majors: International Studies and French double major. I’m taking French with the Arabic track.
Minor: None
Extracurricular Activities: I have been involved in the Immunity Campaign which promotes access to vaccines, I recently joined Student Government, I am part of the Arab Student’s Association, and I’ve written for Fools Magazine.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Arab Student’s Association has and I’m anticipating student government will have a big impact. A lot of people in the Arab Student’s Association are from Arab backgrounds and I have Arabic heritage also, but growing up I never was exposed to people with a similar background as me. Being part of that organization has really helped with identity, having a sense of belonging, and a connection to culture and heritage.
