Salimah Hussien

Warm Greetings,

My name is Salimah Hussien, an undergrad senior majoring in Bioengineering at the University
of New Hampshire. I am the Region 1 International Chair for the 2017-18 academic year. I am
super excited for this coming year. West African Zone (WAZ) falls within Region 1 of the
National Society of Black Engineers. The majority of region 1 members are from Ghana and
Nigeria and I hope to expand that.

Values of NSBE International
  1. An international collegiate association with strong pre-collegiate, alumni and graduate school affiliations
  2. A partner organization that promotes student participation in existing national engineering professional organizations
  3. A conduit for international students to access scholarships and internships abroad
  4. A bridge to large populations of African diaspora professionals living and working abroad
  5. A source of statistical information about academic and professional standing of the African disaspora in engineering, science and technology in a global context
  6. A platform for International Students to network and creates an atmosphere for students to leverage leadership skills
If you have any questions at all, please let me know!
