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.”
