Meet the International Student Ambassadors
Our International Student Ambassadors are a diverse group of student leaders who provide
support for our international students. Student Ambassadors organize campus events,
provide campus tours, and serve as welcoming guides during new international student
orientation. The International Ambassador Program teaches new skills, provides professional
development and allows international students to create a community in which their
unique skills and talents are valued and supported.
I'm Malak and I am from Egypt. I moved to the US two years ago. I’m majoring in Architecture
as I find it an opportunity for me to share my ideas and help create functional and
beautiful structures. Spring 2022 will be my last semester at CSM. I love to drive,
travel, and spend time with friends and family.”
