Name: Miriam Alhassani (She/Her)

Position: Programming Chair

High School you graduated from (and city): I graduated from Insight School of Washington, located in Tacoma.

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia? At first, it was for running start, but I stayed because of how welcoming Cascadia is and how they get you to feel like you are a part of a community that is here to support you!

What advice would you give a new student? If I could give any advice, it would be to advocate for your needs on campus. There are always listening ears and to get involved in clubs! Cascadia offers a variety of things to do, so do not be afraid to explore around.

What are your plans after Cascadia? After Cascadia, I plan on transferring to UW or UWB to earn my bachelor's degree in business.

What are your hobbies/interests? Currently, I like exploring many different cafes, I am also getting into writing, and am getting back into working out. I also am a huge book worm at times but most of the time, I’ll be watching something on Netflix.

If you could be a superhero, what would your superpower be? I would say Deadpool. Deadpool uses the approach of not coming off as intimidating but rather someone who uses humor to connect with others, which is what I’m a huge fan of.

What are some of your favorite snacks? Honestly, I like to rotate with snacks and try something new from a variety of cultures!

What advice would you give a new student? A piece of advice I would give to incoming Cascadia students is to step out of their comfort zones and put themselves out there. Students are given numerous ways to meet new people and create a sense of community. All they need to do is go for it!
