Rita Khlafa

I am a daughter of Lebanese immigrants and am a student at Arizona State University. I speak Arabic, Spanish and English and am able to connect with people on a deeper level because of my ability to be multilingual. I love being able to give back to my community, especially the people who are like family here at Mountain Park.

Seeing the world is important to me and something I enjoy doing when not in school. I have been fortunate enough to have opportunities to travel and would love to continue seeing as much of the world as I can. I also enjoy exploring Arizona—going on early morning hikes—and spending time with my family and friends. Most of my extended family lives overseas in Lebanon. Because family is extremely important to me, I try to spend as much time with them as I can.
