Maisha Maliha Hoque

Maisha, an alumnae of the AYLP Bangladesh exchange, first gained exposure to World Savvy while hosting a workshop for the program through Green Channel, a nonprofit that aims to see a cleaner Dhaka city. She later went on to participate in AYLP 2012-13 as a part of the Bangladeshi cohort. She took on the role of translator during the Service Learning programs to build a bridge between the two cultures. 

Maisha has recently immigrated to the US and is now an undergraduate student at American University in Washington, DC where she continues her efforts to learn more about other cultures while promoting her own unique culture by majoring in International Relations. 

In her spare time, Maisha loves attending embassy events, exploring DC or introducing her friends to Bengali cuisine.
