Munisa Said

Munisa SaidMunisa Said, a graduating senior at Cardozo Education Campus, calls her school a “diverse, open-minded, empowering community.” “I’ve really liked Cardozo,” she says. “I’ve had a lot of opportunities and I’ve tried to take advantage of them.” She certainly took advantage during her senior year as a member of Student Government, the Student Executive Board, her school’s Local School Advisory Team (LSAT), choir group, tennis team, TransSTEM academy, mentoring program, and a club that empowers young women to channel their inner beauty. Outside of school, she completed an internship at Covington & Burling, and started an online magazine called Real Culture. Ultimately, she wants to work in global health care reform to “expand equal access to health care” because in her parents’ home country of Somalia, “political tensions left people without health care.” She wants her younger classmates to dream big: “Don’t be afraid to set your bar too high. I never thought I’d be going to Princeton, but I always had that dream. You’re going to face people who will doubt you. Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want and what is yours.” #DCPSGoesToCollege
