Bilquisu Abdullah (She/Her/Hers)

My name is Bilquisu and I go by Billie! I am a first year student in the Georgetown College studying in the Pre-Med program. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and enjoy getting involved with volunteer opportunities, HOYAS For Choice, the Black Student Association, and GU Politics. As an undergraduate student, I understand how scary and overwhelming the challenges of higher education can be to younger and disadvantaged students. This is why I am dedicated to making the Center for Multicultural Equity and Access an inviting, warm, and safe space!
