Meet Tehreem Waqas Mela ’20, who came to Mount Holyoke from Lahore, Pakistan. A politics and studio art major, Tehreem was drawn to Mount Holyoke due to its commitment to international students. Tehreem is a campus leader, serving as a SAW mentor, a liaison for the Muslim Students Association, and assuming leadership roles in the Five College Model United Nations XI, Pakistani Students for Change, and the MHC Model United Nations team.
“Mount Holyoke's commitment to international students and their representation really drew me in. I have recently started to realise how empowered I am to be an agent of change in my community in college, and to carry those skills with me in my life.”
