As your new faculty advisor, I would like to express my gratitude to the outgoing president and soon-to-be alumna Safia Ansari for this opportunity to work with you all in representing Muslims at GSU and representing GSU for the greater Atlanta area. Last fall I started at GSU as an Arabic instructor in the Middle East Institute. I was born in Minneapolis, a child of Pakistani immigrants. Like many of my students, I started formal study of Arabic as an undergraduate, and Arabic has become my life's passion and vocation ever since. I look forward to helping MSA collaborate with other organizations and communities, both on campus and off, in order to broaden MSA's impact and audience. And in the process of realizing this vision, I look forward to getting to know each of you both as students as well as sisters and brothers in faith. My office is in the 34 Peachtree building, suite 2019 and my (virtual) door is always open, so feel free to contact me at [log in to unmask] with any questions or concerns. -- Visit us at GSUMSA.com!
