Meet LA Communications Intern Mariam Syed

July 10, 2014

Mariam Syed is currently entering in her final year of high school and has joined MPAC this summer as a Communications and Marketing Intern in our Los Angeles office. Mariam’s interests in international affairs and journalism have encouraged her to establish a more secure bond between American Muslims and the public as well as inspired her to take a more active role in her community. 

As a second generation American Muslim, Mariam pursues her goal in bringing together American Muslims and Americans through her involvement in interfaith activities as part of her leadership role as Vice President for her Youth Group in her local mosque community.  She also is heavily involved with planning and coordinating activities such as Youth Qiyams and basketball tournaments for her mosque. 

As an intern at MPAC, Mariam hopes to gain skills and experience to work with the media in order to spread a more positive outlook on the American Muslim community.  In addition, she hopes that the internship will provide her the opportunity to be able to more fully develop her interests in community engagement and coalition building.
