Why I serve on the IDBEA committee...

As an asylum seeker from a country where hyperinflation, political unrest, and scarcity forced millions to leave searching for a better life, I am all too familiar with the IDBEA plight. Throughout my professional journey, I have created programs that fostered allyship, networking, and employment opportunities for minority students. I strive to influence the spaces I embody to make IDBEA are common practice. I hope my participation in the NYU SPS IDBEA Committee helps shape a culture where all voices are heard, respected, and amplified on the student and employee fronts.
