Faiza Mawani

Personalized Path

Faiza Mawani is a junior double majoring in political science and history with hopes of practicing law and writing public policies in the future. She is also pursuing a Master's in Public Administration in the Accelerated-Bachelor’s-to Master’s (ABM) program.

To increase her exposure to courses outside of her major, Faiza selected the Personalized Path because she wanted the flexibility to take courses, such as art and coding classes. Through the Honors College experience, Faiza found her time at UAB to be rewarding. For the past two years, she served as a Student Mentor and Retreat Team (SMART) Leader and most recently, a SMART Leader Coordinator. She is also an active member of the Blazer Spirit Council, Off-Campus Student Council, and Tobacco-Free at UAB.

As a first-year honors student, she began working as a blog intern for the UAB Institute for Human Rights where she spreads awareness of human rights issues to a global audience in an accessible format. She also assisted Peter Jones, Ph.D. in researching educational funding for the state of Alabama, as well as conducting data analysis on Birmingham City Schools in collaboration with Lauren Rast, Ph.D. and ProjectEd Birmingham.

In her free time, she loves to travel with her sisters and take pictures.
