Hadiyyah Aida Abdul-Jalaal 

I am a Government and International Politics major with a concentration in International Relations and a minor in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.

The Schar School has provided me with all the resources necessary to be successful at Mason. Not only the faculty (who I’m privileged to call my mentors), but also the Schar School staff, have always gone above and beyond in offering their assistance and guidance.

I’m involved in Mason Ambassadors and Hamro Chino (Nepali Fusion Dance Team.) and have served as a Mason Admissions Telecounselor (supervisor) and a Global Politics Fellow.

I am a Government and International Politics major with a concentration in American Institutions and Processes with a minor in Economics.

I chose Mason mainly because of the Schar School and its close proximity to D.C. I have been amazed not only by the high-quality teaching, but by the real-world experience and knowledge faculty bring to the classroom.

I’m involved in the Leadership and Community Engagement LLC (Living and Learning Community) and the Global Politics Fellowship Program. I am also serving as a Peer Student Success Coach.

I am a Government and International Politics major with a concentration in International Relations and a minor in Middle Eastern Studies.

I chose Mason’s Schar School for its reputation, helpful faculty, the endless opportunities offered, and its proximity to D.C. In the span of one year, I had the chance to intern at different non-profit organizations, which helped expand my knowledge in international relations. [The Schar School’s] top-20 ranking of best U.S. public policy schools is what drew me from my hometown of Amman, Jordan.

I am involved in the Arab Student Association (Vice President), and serve as the ABPA (Arab-American Business and Professional Association) Student Ambassador to George Mason University.
