A rising senior at Indiana University studying Neuroscience and International Studies, Iman Mahoui’s engagement and work ethic throughout her schooling as a youth advocate and peer mentor provided her with unique opportunities to reach and affect diverse groups of students and adults alike. Her passions lie in science, political outreach, raising environmental and social awareness, book, nature, and writing about any or all of the aforementioned topics. Iman hopes to become a clinical research physician someday and although her background lay in scientific research, it was because of her professors, friends, and mentors at Indiana University that she became inspired to write for the sake of writing.
