I joined ASUW Senate because I am very passionate about student advocacy and empowerment.
During my time as an ASUW Senator, I served as a Senate Liaison for the Student Safety Advisory Board where I've worked and collaborated with student leaders to improve campus safety through weekly open forums.
I applied for the internship position at the ASUW Campus Partnership because I want to be a part of an entity to increase transparency and awareness for students about entities and organizations on campus that addresses their needs.
Prior to earning the position, I networked and connected with Nicole From, the Assistant Director of the ASUW Office and Outreach Involvement. I shared with her my passion and interest in building collaborations with healthcare organizations on campus. That's when I first heard about the ASUW Campus Partnerships internship position, and she encouraged me to apply for it. I learned that this opportunity relates to my goal of fostering conversations with several entities around the topics of student physical and mental health. So I went ahead and applied for the position during the Fall of 2020, and got the role.
With my experience in interviewing stakeholders and conducting data analysis, I dedicated my time to contributing to discussions related to student health and wellness, as well as establishing a wellness campaign initiative with campus partners.
After identifying the needs of navigating student safety resources, I built an all-in-one-place web content safety resource guide for 40K+ UW students to access.
I am very grateful for the support Waleed Khan (Director of ASUW Campus Partnerships) has provided throughout my internship experience. Thank you so much, Waleed!
