Shayan Khan of Lake Mary grew up in Pakistan and in 2013, began her college career in Texas as an international student, but she had to put her studies on hold for financial reasons and return home in 2015. With encouragement from her family she pushed through that setback, and in 2016 enrolled at Seminole State after learning about the College from an aunt who lives in Central Florida. Khan got involved in the Student Government Association and served as the 2018-19 president for the College’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Additionally, Khan is a member of Seminole State Volunteers and has logged more than 100 hours of community service with organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club, Coalition for the Homeless and Harvest Time International. With her Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business and Information Management, Khan is pursuing a career in information systems management.
