Salam! My name is Sarah Faysal and I am from Holmdel, New Jersey. I have completed my bachelor’s degree in Political Science and am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Elementary Education and Middle School History/English at Rutgers University. As an educator, I’ve always had a strong interest in providing mental health resources for Muslim American youth as well as pushing students towards civic and community involvement. Additionally, as someone involved with different faith-based and activist organizations, I always felt a deep passion towards youth empowerment and mental health education. Outside of school I enjoy performing spoken word, reading books, and spending time with friends and family.
