Growing up in such a conservative part of the country helped her realize the importance of bipartisan efforts and dialogue in making change happen. She aspires to focus in conflict resolution and become a diplomat to resolve the increasing global tensions in this rapidly changing world.

Hoping to focus on the Middle East and South Asia in terms of foreign policy, Zoya is currently learning Arabic, and brushing up her Urdu-speaking skills.

During her time at Johns Hopkins till now, Zoya has been a member of the Model United Nations team, the Awareness Director for the JHU Chapter of Nourish International, and the External Community Relations Chair for the Muslim Student Association Board. Through all of these positions, she hops to foster conversations on how we can all come together to work for a common goal.

Zoya is excited to intern with PAKPAC this semester and looks forward to empowering the community during these critical times.
