Tar Heel Born, Tar Heel Bred
Yusra Iftikhar is a graduate student in the Master of Physiology program at NC State University. However, a Tar Heel born and bred, Yusra completed her B.S. in Psychology with a minor in religious studies at UNC Chapel Hill. Yusra is currently involved in research at an institute in Indiana and looks forward to pursuing a career in medicine. Basketball is her favorite season as she prepares year-round to cheer for two teams- Carolina, and anybody playing Duke!
“Remember me as someone who was loyal to the Carolina community. I’m in debt to Islam because it has taught me how to love something deeply, my university, and talk to everyone else about it as a Student Ambassador.”
