Meet Marwa Al-Khamees, 21-year old third-year @pdxbschool student double majoring in Management and Leadership and Human Resource Management. Marwa was born and raised in Iraq and lived in Syria as a refugee before she moved to Portland in 2010. She says “As a Muslim woman, I want everything I do to highlight my identity to empower young immigrant girls and show them they can achieve their dreams.” She chose Portland State because she is a “city girl” and appreciates the urban campus and the proximity to work opportunities and internships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She serves as President for the @psu_redcross, a mentor in Multicultural Retention Programs, a member of the President’s Student Council and The School Of Business’ Dean’s Future Leaders group. She is also a Student Coordinator of Orientation Programs and the Student Ambassador Program. Marwa enjoys growing as a leader and seeing student leaders develop their skills. As President of PSU Red Cross, she loves empowering PSU students to donate blood and volunteer. Marwa encourages the PSU community to support the PSU Winter Blood Drive on January 22nd - January 25th. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Marwa’s favorite place to study is at the Karl Miller Center. Her hobbies include shopping, yoga and photography. Her favorite food cart on campus is Dogs and Fries.
