Pakistani Student Meets VP Kamala Harris

with formatting

Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (UGRAD) grantee Momina Khan met Kamala Harris, vice president of the United States, at an event in February on the campus of South Carolina State University (SCSU), an acclaimed historically black university. Khan was invited to the vice president’s campaign stop at SCSU to share her experience as a South Asian exchange student. She spoke about how studying at Claflin University (another historically black university) has given her a positive perspective on the United States and its role in elevating marginalized groups to prominent leadership roles.

Harris noted the importance of Momina’s position as an exchange student, saying the role is “vital for our public diplomacy efforts.”

Momina is attending a semester at Claflin University as part of the Global UGRAD program.
