Imaan Hussain ’19 has spent the last 10 years at Lausanne, and is grateful for the globally minded environment the school offers.
“Along with being an American, I pride myself in being Pakistani, said Imaan. “I love sharing my culture and my traditions at Lausanne. I easily found myself a place in Lausanne, its diversity made me feel like I was being embraced.”
Imaan is co-president of HOSA, president of the National Honor Society and co-captain of the science bowl, but even with multiple extra-curricular activities, she has always liked to challenge herself academically by taking rigorous courses and working hard to reach the expectations she placed on herself.
“Ever since middle school, I’ve been a very science inclined person,” Imaan said. “Anything that has to do with logic fascinates me. Over the course of my four years of high school I’ve taken the maximum amount of science classes I can (eight). Because of my passion for science, I’m planning on majoring in biology and following a pre-med track, although I’m not sure exactly what I want to be.”
Imaan’s current choices of interest for colleges are University of Richmond, Aga Khan University and Rhodes. Although she is still figuring out what she wants to do career wise, service is something she wants to continue regardless of what she pursues.
“Service gives me a sense of community and I think sharing time and knowledge is a responsibility on all those who are able to,” Imaan said. “Because of the ethics instilled in me by my parents, my community and my time at Lausanne, I hope to become a socially conscious human being and do whatever I can to help bring positive change in the world.”
