When evaluating whether a mentor would be a good match for your student keep in mind that the greatest leading indicator of success is how well a mentor and their mentee get along.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Would the student find this person inspiring?
  • Do they share any interests, hobbies, or lived experiences?

Abrar is a Harvard graduate who studied Government on the Data Science track, with a Secondary in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. She is originally from Roswell, Georgia, and is the daughter of two Libyan immigrant parents. Passionate about politics and international relations from a young age, Abrar was president of her high school’s Model UN team for two years, and successfully led the team to winning multiple conference awards for the first time in the team’s history. During her time at Harvard, Abrar worked for the Democratic Party of Georgia, and during her gap year, worked full time for the Jon Ossoff Senate campaign both as a finance associate and field organizer helping Jon deliver a historic win in Georgia. Additionally, she worked as the Evaluation Coordinator for Breaktime, using her analytic skills to help in the organization’s goal to end youth homelessness in Boston. 

Beyond politics, Abrar is a deeply creative person directing, designing, modeling in, and editing various DIY photo shoots over the pandemic and the last two years. Her work has been featured in Sunstroke Magazine multiple times. At Harvard, Abrar was part of WHRB and served as the station’s Vice President for over two years where she helped manage the station’s operations as well as direct the development of station podcasts. Never tied down to a narrow set of interests, she is also passionate about classical Islamic philosophy, Arabic literature, as well as the history, literature, and thought of Mesopotamia & Ancient Egypt. 

Above all else, Abrar is dedicated to creating inclusive community spaces and amplifying underrepresented narratives through them. This is exemplified both by the research she’s done about Amazigh Indigeneity, as well as the multiple inclusive art events she personally hosted at Harvard her senior year. When free from any sort of strict commitments, Abrar loves being active, reading and engaging with art, and above all else, spending time with dear friends. She is so excited to help her students crystalize their passions, and pursue them with intentionality!
