Noorjahan Rahman is one of two Ambassadorial Scholars from our district this year.  She is currently a senior

at The Ohio State University majoring in Political Science and History. In 2008, Noor co-founded the South Asian Student Association (SASA) at OSU. As Vice President during the 2008-2009 academic year, she had in integral part in furthering SASA's mission, which includes encouraging all South Asian student organizations at the university to act as allies to one another.  Noor's academic path in Political Science is motivated by her interest in good governance and justice. During her time working for Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, she became familiar with the issues concerning Ohio residents and addressed constituents' concerns by connecting them with the governmental agencies and services designed to serve their needs. Noor's work in the state level drove her to learn more about the political process at the federal level. In the summer of 2009 she interned for Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy in Washington, D.C. Noor intends to attend law school and in the summer of 2008, she studied at the University of Oxford in a course designed to prepare students to study law. Among the topics discussed were ethics in law, the philosophy of law, and the history of the Anglo American legal system. Noor hopes to use a law degree to do public service and is exploring careers that work with international bodies.
