Communications Intern

Tajwar Khan is a second-year student at Glendale Community college majoring in Political Science and Sociology. A first-generation immigrant born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, he emigrated from Bangladesh at the age of three. Growing up in Los Angeles, he was exposed to the melting pot of different cultures and people. Tajwar’s love for his community and curiosity to learn about other cultures led him to pursue a career in public service, aiming toward foreign relations with interest in public health and wellness. He believes mental health is a critical and undervalued aspect of people’s lives. He has increased awareness of the topic by leading seminars with a group of colleagues for the My Brother’s Keeper Conference at USC sponsored by the Obama Foundation with the department of mental health. In addition, Tajwar believes the government should have a more diverse set of policymakers, people of color, and individuals who have firsthand experience in the different forms of adversity in life. Tajwar has volunteered for many community organizations; he was recently the regional youth coordinator for the Bangladesh Unity Federation of Los Angeles (BUFLA). Tajwar’s passion lies in working with his community towards programs that help usher unity. In his spare time Tajwar likes to watch football, read and travel.
