Meet Government & Policy Intern Aysha Ahmed

September 19, 2014

Aysha Ahmed is one of the latest additions to the government and policy fall Internship. She is currently a student of Indiana University with a major in International Relations and a focus in International Development, along with a minor in Spanish and Political Science. Originally from England, brought up in Indiana, Aysha’s passion for learning and engaging experiences has guided her to the fast-paced world of politics and policy in Washington, D.C.

Aysha embodies the quality of an active leader both inside and outside the office whether it is traveling with a team to New Orleans during breaks to help rebuild damaged homes, facilitating a panel on hot topics for her campus body with various organizations, organizing new initiatives, or traveling to informative conferences across the country, Aysha is always ready to step up to the plate.

Aysha believes it is imperative that American Muslims actively participate in their communities and hopes to empower fellow Muslims to break the status quo, a mission close to her heart as a first-generation American Muslim. As an intern at MPAC, she hopes to take away the resources and tools necessary to better understand and represent the demographics of the American Muslim population as well as gaining skills that will set a foundation for her professional career ahead. She consistently echoes the voice of Steve Jobs with the quote, “The ones who think they are crazy enough to change the world, are the ones who do.”
