Aya was born in Baghdad, Iraq before she moved to Michigan and then Omaha where she attended high school. She is a Political Science student entering her junior year at UNO.
Her love for meeting new people and advocating for their needs and wants is what attracted Aya to run for Student Body President.
Aya's biggest goal is to focus on student engagement; providing resources and communities that her peers need to succeed during their time at UNO.
