Sisterhood Chair

ALIZEH HASAN

Salaam homies, I hope y’all are buckling up for an exciting year ahead of us, cuz I know I am! I’m Alizeh, pronounced “uh-lee-zay” since you were wondering, and I’m honored to be serving as this year’s MSA Sisterhood Chair! Now an upcoming 4th-year, I remember entering OSU initially as a transfer student and being taken aback by the herds and crowds. If you had told me then, that walking to a general body meeting alone on a Friday night would become the best decision I made in my pivotal undergraduate experience- I would’ve laughed at you but still gone anyways. This has been a dream in the making, and InshaAllah we can work together to help create more. I hope to connect with more of you homies this fall and see y’all soon!

ADAM KHALIFA

Assalamu Alaikum everyone! My name is Adam Khalifa and I am a rising Junior at OSU. I am a transfer student from University of Minnesota and I am currently studying Education, specifically youth studies. As a transfer student, I struggled finding community until I found the MSA. Being around fellow muslims not only strengthens my iman, but it gives me an overall sense of belonging. As brotherhood chair, I hope to provide everyone with that same sense of belonging by creating a welcoming environment regardless of one’s background or level of faith. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns, or if you just need somebody to talk to!
