Zahara Madahah for 1L Class President Detroit Mercy School of Law
Hi everyone! I’m Zahara Madahah and I am planning on running for our class 1L President. I have experience as President of my former Police Academy class and possess strong leadership attributes that I know are effective. However, having leadership qualities is not what this is only about. It is also about building a network of relationships as a student with each other and within the legal discourse community we all plan to serve in.
My experience as a past President was not easy. I was uncomfortable. But the best part was being aware that I needed to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. It will be my honor to serve as our class President and continue working with everyone while classmates and future colleagues.
Thank everyone for their votes and I look forward to moving into this new chapter with life long friends. If you see me around feel free to stop me for a chat. Whether that’s about SBA or how much we all have dreamt about Rule 8 (a) and 12 (b)!!!!!
I’d like to add, 25 signatures from immediate classmates are required. If you happen to sign without being immediate classmate that signature is still worth seeing to me and I’m very grateful for them in whatever capacity that may be.
