Malak is starting her Master in Public Policy in the fall of 2019 and is hoping to graduate spring of 2021. She just graduated with a major in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy and a minor in Muslim Studies from the James Madison College at Michigan State University. She is a proud Palestinian Muslim American who has been a part of East Lansing since elementary school, and is a big volunteer and advocate in her community. She has worked with former State Representative Andy Schor and former mayor Virg Bernero in their offices. She recently grew a large interest in education policy and was able to intern in Detroit Public Schools Community District in the Bilingual department. There she learned the inner workings of a school district, which only got her more interested in education policy. Malak hopes to run for office one day and change people’s lives for the better. She enjoys listening to music and making people laugh.
