Manal Cheema (’17)
Manal Cheema is a senior majoring in Political Science in addition to pursuing a certificate in Ethics, Law, and Society and a minor in Cognitive and Brain Sciences. She has been involved with ALLIES since her freshman year as Freshman Rep/JRP Coordinator and served as Treasurer her sophomore year. She is excited to serve as Co-Director and work on expanding ALLIES this year. Outside of ALLIES, Manal runs a debating society at Tufts, the Union, and is a Writing Fellow. She is also writing a thesis on the Vietnam and Iraq Wars, undoubtedly inspired by her participation in ALLIES. For fun, she draws, pretends to be fit, and relishes in the fact that she can still beat her 10 year-old sister in Mario Kart after a shocking loss in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
