How have you been involved on campus?
What do you enjoy about UC Davis?
I have been involved in the ME/SA community since my first year. During my second year at UC Davis, I was on the Muslim Student Association board as well as Club Finance Council and the Academic Affairs Commission in ASUCD. During my junior year, I served as the president of the Pakistani Student Association. I have also worked at the Cross Cultural Center for two years, and I am currently serving as the Middle Eastern/South Asian campus climate coordinator.
Since coming to UC Davis, I have enjoyed taking advantage of the several opportunities of community involvement offered to UC Davis students. Upon entry, I was immediately welcomed by the different cultural clubs, and it was a little weird at first, because I identified as Afghan-American and wanted to only take part in my own cultural club. However, because of how welcoming and kind members of other ethnic communities were toward me, they gave me a chance to learn about different cultures and helped me become a more well-rounded person.
