November's Spotlights include:<ul><li>Opportunity: Junior Achievement for a Day (Save the date for Tuesday, March 14th) </li>
<li>Need to Know: Feeling stressed? Counseling is available on all three campuses.</li></ul>This issue's student spotlight is on Fatima Khan, president of the Muslim Student Association at Rockville. Fatima is an active student on campus, passionate about social change, art and of course, helping others. As the daughter of Pakistani parents, she is also happy to share her cultural heritage with the MC community through the MSA.

Last month, Fatima participated in the World of Montgomery Festival. "One of my favorite experiences this semester was working with Student Life on the World of Montgomery Festival. Helping to design activities and then see those activities actually come to life is a great feeling! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the people who walked through the tent at the festival and talking to them. It was awesome," Khan said.

Fatima has jumped headfirst into the opportunities to engage in social issues that have crossed her path. More recently, Fatima spoke at the One Love Club's "Wraps & Other Ups" event centered on women's empowerment, including hijab-wearing Muslims. She also led a group discussion with the MSA to open a space for students to discuss their sincere feelings and concerns surrounding the presidential election.

When asked how service-learning has changed her, she responded, "It was so much easier to get involved and do things than I had thought. There are so many great opportunities around us I hadn't realized were there, and I'm really grateful to be a part of it."

Fatima strives for balance between her school work, volunteering and social life. By recruiting her friends to get involved too, she finds ways to combine socializing with volunteering.

Thank you Fatima for engaging so many students, sharing yourself with our community, and representing MC values!
