Rihab Shuaib

Rihab Shuaib is a Ghanaian-American student at California State University, Dominguez Hills. She is a Human Resources Management major, with a minor in Africana studies. She serves as the official student voice on campus as the 2020-21 Associated Students President. Shuaib’s passion for student growth and student support resources came from her first on-campus experience as an Orientation Leader. Within this role, she learned how to connect with her peers and help students overcome institutional barriers. Through this experience, Shauib discovered a lot about the campus culture and wanted to be a part of the decision-making that affects student experiences. She decided to join the ASI Board of Directors, where she began to learn about the shared governance process and what it truly means to advocate for students. Shuaib has served two terms on the ASI Board of Directors as the Student Activities Commissioner and the Vice President of Finance. She is a strong advocate for ASI providing Basic Needs services, student organization funding, and additional support for affinity centers. Shuaib has a long list of co-curricular activities throughout her undergraduate education but is the proudest of being the co-founder of the Women Success Alliance (WSA). WSA is a student-run organization that cultivates a space for women and women-aligned folx to support and uplift each other throughout their higher education journeys. Rihab Shuaib is an excited student leader who will always place student experience at the forefront of her decision making.
