After a five-month trip in Pakistan shook up her worldview, Jai Hamid Bashir transferred to the U so she could learn how to be “a vessel for change.” “Experiencing a world beyond Salt Lake City really opened my eyes,” she said. Bashir is now triple majoring in environmental and sustainability studies, English and gender studies while she seeks to effect change in the community. She is the director of the Student Immersion and Outreach Board at ASUU and is currently the senior chair of the English undergraduate committee. She has organized events such as the People’s Climate March in Salt Lake City and a campus forum on women’s education in solidarity with Malala Yousafzai. Bashir hopes to continue her efforts after graduation while pursuing a master’s in environmental humanities.
