Misbah Farooqi is the President of Columbia MSA this year and a junior in Columbia College studying political science and Middle Eastern and South Asian studies. She is originally from Maryland and will never let you forget her DMV roots (DC, Maryland, and Virginia, NOT the Department of Motor Vehicles). Misbah is also a transfer student, and this is her second year at Columbia. Besides having an interest in politics and Middle Eastern/South Asian studies, Misbah is also passionate about community organizing, social justice, education, and journalism. She hopes to attend law school in the future and run for office one day (don't forget to vote for her, iA). In her free time, Misbah loves to write, drink way more coffee than she should, explore NYC, and fangirl over Zayn Malik (please hit her up if you're into that as well). As MSA VP, Misbah hopes to create an inclusive and welcoming community for Muslim students of all backgrounds and ensure that everyone feels as though they have a family within Columbia MSA. Feel free to hit her up if you have any questions about Columbia, being a transfer student, MSA, or just want to say hi!
