Meet the Workshop Leaders

Our peer leaders offer academic-strategies workshops. Meet the team below.

Khaqan Ahmad

Khaqan Ahmad

SESP, Class of 2020

My name is Khaqan Ahmad and I am a sophomore in the School of Education and Social Policy majoring in Social Policy. I am from the suburbs of Dallas, Texas and I still have not gotten used to the Chicago winters. As a freshman myself, I received a lot of help from upperclassmen in adjusting to academic life at Northwestern and I hope to pay that forward as a Peer Academic Leader.
