Hi everyone! My name is Zuhal Rahmani and I am a third year Psychology major, hoping to double major in Psychology and Community and Regional Development.
I grew up with a rich traditional and cultural Afghan background that has always made me curious about the customs and traditions of other cultures. From an early age, I have traveled with my family to Germany, Holland and Australia and this has made me aware of the various customs that each country and its people have. Many of my extended family members live abroad, scattered around the world from Afghanistan, Russia, and many parts of Europe and Australia. This has made me very passionate about traveling because going to a foreign, or unknown place is a great opportunity for adventure and new experiences.
I hope to study abroad during my time in UC Davis, and I look forward to working as an Administrative Assistant at the Study Abroad Office and encouraging students to have an enriched experience studying abroad.
