What are the brief specifics of your educational/career background?
I completed both my BS in psychology and MEd in higher education administration at Northeastern University. Prior to working with the Khoury College co-op team, I worked at Northeastern’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business co-op office as an academic assistant and then a data administrator.
What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most/find most interesting about what you do?
My role at Khoury College entails supporting students both in their preparation to go out on co-op and during their co-op at one of our employer partners. This includes resume and interview support to best position our students to land one of our co-op opportunities. Additionally, I review and comment on their reflections on guided inquiries based on their co-op experiences. I also engage in job development research, events, and operations support for Khoury College co-op programs.
What’s the most compelling thing to you about the research/work that goes on at the College?
I am and have been a longtime admirer of Northeastern’s co-op program, which gives students firsthand experiences in their various fields of study. Having seen the benefits of the co-op program and model both as a student and staffer at Northeastern, it is an honor for me to continue my engagement with the co-op program at Khoury College and support our students to fulfill their educational and professional aspirations.
Where did you grow up/spend the most defining years of your child/young adulthood?
I was born and raised in Somalia. I also spent some of my most defining years of my childhood in Ethiopia and Kenya before I moved to the US in 2006.
