Arshia Hussain is a second year Master’s of Public Policy candidate at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Her interest in public policy and community organizing started when she saw the lack of representation in all levels of government. Through her participation in academia, civic engagement, and development, she works to make big changes in her communities. This means dismantling systems of oppression like patriarchy, sexism, and islamophobia. Inspired by personal and professional experiences, she aspires to work in wealth redistribution and give back to marginalized communities. When not working or studying, she enjoys traveling the world and spending time with her cat, family, and friends.
