Farah Shallan

Event Coordinator

Salams friends! I’m Farah Shallan & I’m the Event Coordinator for this year iA. I’m a Marketing & Sociology double major. I have 3 nieces (for now) so you’ll hear me referencing them pretty often (sorry not sorry). Also, studies have shown that there are benefits to sarcasm, so I’ve taken it up as a second language. So, there’s a 9/10 chance I’m being sarcastic. One of my all time favorite quotes: My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and that what misses me was never meant for me. (Imam Ash-Shafi’i)"
