Soha Saghir '21
Soha is with a prospective double major in Political Science and Economics with a concentration in Peace, Justice and Human Rights. After college, she hopes to specialize in immigration policy and work for immigration reform as she is deeply invested in the issue. Moving around a lot as a child, the word "home" for her does not refer to a singular place and her experiences make her a strong believer in the concept of global citizenship. This along with the wish to bring more of the outside world to Haverford are what pushed her to get involved with the CPGC. Other than the CPGC her involvements on campus include being a board member for the ISA, a Peer Awareness Facilitator for Customs and a Representative to Honor Council for her class. She cares deeply about advancing social justice, both on campus and in the outside world, and wants to keep working in this direction, one step at a time. (Also, she loves making friends so please say hi and talk if you see her, she would appreciate that so much!!)
