I joined the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) as a board member, and then became the Undergraduate Co-Chair of the board.

ISAB is board formed by undergraduate students, graduate students, and International Student and Scholarship Services (ISSS) administrators. The goal is to identify problems international students, graduate and undergraduate, face, and to initiate campus wide change stemming from ISSS and affecting many international students of Penn.

Certain projects and changes I have been involved with are the redesign of the Penn Global Website, the overhaul of the waiting system at ISSS by implementing an automated system, and organizing focus groups to increase direct communication between international students and administrators.

I have also represented the undergraduate international student community in admin meetings, voicing the problems international students face to representatives from Career Services, Counseling and Psychological Services, International Student and Scholarship Services and many more.
