Current MSA Officers:
Your 2012-2013 MSA Officers!
President: Aisha Yaqoob
I am a third year from Suwanee, Georgia. I am majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Communication Studies. My coursework has an emphasis on Disability Studies and I hope to one day work for an organization the promotes the rights of people with disabilities. I'm a recent cat lover and long time lover of all things Facebook. I became involved with MSA because I wanted to be able to make an impact on an organization that could do so much good.
Vice President: Najlaa Bassim
I am a second-year student from Alpharetta, Georgia. I am double majoring in International Affairs and Arabic, with a Pre-law intention. I am your MSA VP, and this year I was also elected to be the Georgia MSA Council treasurer. The reason why I joined MSA was to raise awareness about Islam and also to strengthen our community, inshaAllah.
Fun-Fact: I was born and raised in the Middle East, in Iraq to be more specific. This will be my fourth year in the U.S.
My hobbies include shopping, watching movies and exercising. I also love cats and the colour red. Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
Secretary: Sehrish Viqar
Salam everyone! My name is Sehrish Viqar and I am a third year Microbiology major. I am excited to serve as this year's Muslim Student Association secretary. I remember being a freshman and worrying about finding other muslims on campus to pray/fast with and I'm so glad I found MSA! I have made so many great friends through meetings and events and I can't wait to meet more! My goal this year is to make MSA more well known at UGA and reach out to muslim and nonmuslim students who are interested in being a part of the muslim community, or who just want to learn more about Islam. I hope to see you all at MSA events this year inshaAllah!

My name is Maheen Adnan. I was born in California and raised in Marietta, GA where I have lived most of my life. I am potentially an Economics major with an emphasis in Pre-Medicine. I enjoy traveling; I hope to travel most of the MIddle East, Europe and Asia one day. As Public Relations Chair for MSA, I hope to encourage MSA's involvement with other organizations on campus.
