Hello there! My name is Maheen and I am a sophomore majoring in Philosophy, Politics and Law. The plan right now is to also minor in Communication and International Relations (that’s right, double minor… #fancy). This is my FIRST blog ever as a Dornsife Ambassador, and I couldn’t be happier sharing my experiences with all of you! In honor of my inaugural post, I will share with y’all some information about myself.
I am from the fabulous Seattle area, and yes, it does rain there quite a lot. I love it though! The passionate Seattlite/Trojan fan that I am (Yay, Seahawks!), you can find me at various USC sporting events cheering on our teams! I am also a big fan of puns and have seen the movie Mean Girls at least ten times since I coming to USC.
More fun facts about me are that I love to write and am obsessed with the Daily Trojan! I write for the Sports section and copy edit as well. When I am not writing about USC sports and loving the PPL major, you can usually find me hanging out in the freshman dorms! Is this creepy? No! Because I am a Resident Advisor! I love the RA job so much, and working with freshmen is actually the most enriching experience ever. My residents (shout out!) are the coolest ever.
Another activity that I am involved in is Society 53, the Alumni Association’s student outreach program. I love S53 because it gives me a chance to work with alumni and basically just gush about how much greater USC has gotten since they were last here. Society 53 members work to connect current students and alumni — it’s a unique program for a very unique university! #trojanfamily
I hope that gives you an idea of my involvement at USC and some of my interests! I will be posting more blogs as the year goes on, so keep an eye out.
