Hello, my name is AJ. I am pursuing a Masters in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering. I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia but am originally from India. I am currently an international student. I'm excited to be a Peer Coach because I've been through the ups and downs of being a student and overcame a lot of problems transitioning to different schools internationally. I would like to share and inspire what I've learned throughout the years.
