I am honored to be serving as a Student Ambassador and as a Peer Educator for San Jose State University. I am a Proud Spartan! And it gives me immense joy and pride to give back to this inspiring campus community.
What student or community organizations, internships, etc. are you involved with? How has your involvement impacted your SJSU experience?
Some of my current involvements include:
Peer Educator – Peer Connections
Student Ambassador – Student Outreach & Recruitment
President – Global Student Network
Academic Committee Chair – Sikh Student Association
Lead Dancer – Spartan Bhangra

The amount of resilience and passion that this campus community has instilled in me is beyond compare.
Putting myself out and getting involved on campus is probably one of the best decisions I have made so far.
