Hey! My name is Priya Saha. I identify as female and my preferred gender pronouns are she/her. I’m a fourth year Communication Studies student at York and the first individual in my family to pursue post-secondary studies. The transition from high school to university was quite challenging for me due to the barriers that I faced, but I successfully overcame them. As a Peer Academic Leader I want to assist fellow students address the difficulties they are encountering as first-year students in order for them to have a prosperous academic journey at York. I strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere for my mentees where they can discuss their concerns and turn to for assistance when they need. Apart from studying, I enjoy reading novels, preparing vegan dishes and binge watching YouTube videos. I’m a fun, easy-going person who loves to chat and engaging with people, so I’m looking forward to meeting everyone who turns to the PAL program at Founders College for some guidance while studying at York.
