Salha El-shwehdi

International Studies
Recognition Year: 

Salha El-shwehdi, the daughter of Libyan immigrants, has already traveled widely. She grew up in Springboro, Ohio, but moved to Libya in 2012 for her sophomore year of high school, where she attended the International School of Benghazi. She chose to major in International Studies at Wright State because she has always been interested in the ways that cultural, political, and legal systems have evolved, developed, and interacted. Salha is a recipient of the Ann and Robert Weisgarber Scholarship and she is a member of our award-winning Model UN and Model Arab League teams and has served as a teaching assistant in Arabic at Wright State. She has volunteered for the Friendship Food Pantry, impressing her professors with her compassion. After graduation she hopes to spend some time abroad before attending the University of Dayton School of Law in the fall, with a focus on civil rights law.
