Hi! My name is Faiza (she/her/hers) and I am a junior majoring in International Relations with a minor in Sociology.

I love working at the CSS because it allows me to meet and interact with so many of my peers. I thoroughly enjoy helping students navigate challenges and watching them overcome their obstacles. I think being a peer advisor is especially unique and beneficial because we have all been in each other’s shoes which makes it easier to relate to one another's situations. Outside of studying and working, I love to write and spend time with my friends. As such, I look forward to working as a peer advisor and cultivating meaningful relationships with all of you!
