Fawad is an international student from Afghanistan attending Oberlin College, majoring in Psychology and minoring in Politics and Law & Society. He has a few on-campus jobs and is a member of Bonner Leadership Team. Through the Bonner Scholars program, he has worked for Oberlin Community Services to provide food packages and hygiene packs for Oberlin residents. He is interested in advocating for marginalized groups, including BIPOC and international students. Fawad hopes to develop his leadership skills this summer and learn more about anti-hunger programs through his field placement with ACDI/VOCA through the Congressional Hunger Center. He is excited to participate in the Zero Hunger Internship Program because it provides a unique opportunity to work towards eradicating hunger and malnutrition while gaining valuable skills and experiences in the field of sustainable agriculture and food security.
