Haifa Algabri

Haifa Algabri is a rising junior at Mills College pursuing a B.S degree in Biopsychology and a B.A in Health Policy Analysis as a Pre-Medical student. She graduated from McClymonds High school, a place she considers home and the site of her character development for social justice and active change. As a full time student, Haifa is the President of the Muslim Student Alliance club, Co-Founder of the Pre-Health Track club, former book selection committee member, the Center for Transformative Action (CTA) program assistant, South Asian Middle Eastern Pacific Islander (SAMEAPI) board member, and a Health Advocate of Alameda Health System. She’s currently working in the Jill Barrett Biology Research Program at Mills, while being a Youth Leadership member for the newly organized Yemeni American Youth Center. Through her work with Great School Choice, Haifa addressed and changed a discriminatory policy at Oakland Technical High School towards Muslim women & Yemeni women who did not wish to swim alongside men. She published several of her writings in the Womanist Journal, Campanil, Great School Choice, Education Post, & Energy Convertors. Within the classrooms, Haifa keeps a vigilant eye for justice whether it be calling out racism or decolonizing education by helping inspire a grant in the Psychology Department to develop course curriculum more inclusive towards People of Color. For Haifa, what grants her happiness is investing in her community and always applying herself forward in pursuit of justice, a fire birthed to her by her Islamic faith.
