Fahad is a sophomore Digital Media major with minor in Law. When he’s not a student, he hosts a podcast on Spotify called Lessons We Can Take From Today, where he Interview professionals from representatives to teachers about life lessons anyone can learn. He was also elected to the library board last year, making him the first middle eastern and youngest person elected in his town Bedford's history. He says, “Growing up in a small suburban town, where English was my second language, and coming from a working-class refugee family, taught me a lot about dealing with adversity. Dealing with those setbacks in many ways set me up to be a more resilient and strong person. What attracted me to being a well-being leader, I want people other people to unlock their inner potential. We all have hidden gifts, something that makes you stand out, and I want to help you open them.
