Arisha Syed

Communications & Multimedia Intern

Arisha Syed is currently pursuing a B.A. in Communication Studies with a double-minor in Media & Culture and Women’s & Gender Studies at West Chester University. She grew up in a moderate Sunni Muslim family with her mom, dad, and two little sisters.


In 2014, she was among the first group of students in the Walking the Walk West Chester network—along with her sisters and mom who joined the program later on! In the following years, she went on to become a Walking the Walk Student Group Leader and college mentor. She is also thrilled to be among the first inductees of the Delta Psi chapter of Triota (The Women’s and Gender Studies Honor Society), WCU’s Muslim Student Association, as well as working with Amnesty International.


When she's not drawing, watching ‘The Office,’ or devouring sushi, she loves cooking, going to concerts, and having spa nights with herfriends!
