Salaam guys! I am Emaan Bhutta and I will be the President of the MSA during the 2020-2021 school year! I am currently a junior studying biology on a pre- med track. I am from Howard County, Maryland where I have been quarantining. Some of my interests include crafting, cooking, baking, traveling, and running! On campus, I have also been involved in THON committees during my years at PSU and plan to continue to be. I am excited that our MSA will start to be involved in THON this year. The MSA has brought me so many great friends and wonderful memories.
