MEET THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

President – Asad Ahmed

TexasMSA.President@gmail.com

My name is Asad (not really, few people know my real name and I’d like to keep it that way) Ahmed, and I’m a third-year Electrical and Computer Engineering student. I was born in Santa Clara, California (still not a Warriors fan though), and moved to Dallas when I was four, and my family has lived there ever since. I love TV series, movies (Marvel and Star Wars fans hmu), video games (own a Switch, what else do I need), hanging out with my friends, reading the Quran, and just talking in general (as you can see, huge nerd)! I also LOVE exploring, sightseeing, and traveling! You can usually find me on the Union 4th /5th (because PCL is too mainstream), at the Nueces Library, in the EER or at Halal Bros. Feel free to come say Salam if you ever see me, because I’m super laid-back and would welcome the procrastination! I look forward to having a great year with all of you In Sha’ Allah!

Vice President – Arifeen Saeed

Assalamu Alaikum y’all! My name is Arifeen, and I’m a junior MIS major also pursuing a Computer Science certificate. When I’m not busy with school or MSA, I like to play basketball, table tennis, and frisbee. I’m also a huge Pokémon nerd (before it got cool with Pokémon Go). My favorite NBA team is the Spurs tbh just cuz of how fundamental they are (LA, Patty, DeMar ;)). If you ever see me on or off campus, feel free to say Salam! Look forward to getting to know all of y’all, and having an amazing year iA!

Brothers Coordinator – Ammar Abed

TexasMSA.Brothers@gmail.com

Assalamualaikum y’all! I’m Ammar Abed and I’m a second year Biochemistry/Math major from Cedar Park, TX, about an hour north of here (born and raised for 10 years in Phoenix AZ too so Go Suns! #ValleyBoyz ) If I’m not sleeping in class you’ll probably find me hanging out at Nueces Mosque, PCL (ask me about the PCL Game sometime), or just randomly walking around campus for some unspecified reason. Feel free to wave at me and say salaam if you see me pass by! (Before I see you and do it first) I’m always willing to talk about ANYTHING (I’m gonna regret saying that) but if it involves something with a scoreboard I’m very very down. My goal for this year is to help our community at UT develop stronger relationships with one another, and inshaallah the closer we get, the more beneficial we will all be for each other.
