Major: Political Science
Minor: Middle Eastern Studies
Organizations: Club Tennis, Middle Eastern Students Association

Why Atlas? I find global citizenship an essential part of being an educated college student. Participating in Atlas Week is my effort to become a better global citizen who ceases to see injustices and human rights violations on a national level, but rather begins to see them on a global scale and engage in solutions for them.

Majors: Political Science
Minors: Middle Eastern Studies

Why Atlas? I'm involved in Atlas because I think it is important for everyone to not only be aware and knowledgeable about global issues, but also to strive to make a change in these injustices. In the past I've given my own Atlas events, and I appreciate how they push you to think about what global citizenship actually means.

Why Atlas? Atlas brings individuals together regarding global issues, helping students, faculty, and staff better the world around them. As a foreign born Bosnian-American, I find it exceedingly valuable to learn about other cultures and traditions. I aspire to make a greater impact on the SLU community through Atlas and am enthusiastic to represent those whose voices are scarcely represented.

Why Atlas? When I experienced Atlas Week for the first time, I was amazed at how my thirst for information, inspiration and inter-cultural celebration was satiated all at once! The week of learning and celebration instantly became my favorite week of the year. The logical next step was to contribute, so here I am, a happy intern spreading the educational and cultural wealth.
