He is a student at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and is currently double-majoring in Economics and Public Policy & Law and on the Pre-Law track. His professional goals are yet to be formed, however, he does have aspirations to work in the international law sector. Rakan is currently a Posse Foundation Scholar, a former Boeing Academy Scholar, and serves on his college’s Muslim Student Association Board, various interfaith groups, pre-law society, and works part-time as an Arabic translator and RA. When he is able to, he appreciates watching films, gaming, and exploring different cuisines. His academic and familial background, paired with his preceding experiences and avid desire to aid his own community, have pushed him to pursue this internship at CAIR and he is ecstatic to be a part of the summer 2019 intern cohort
