Mariam Khan is a proud graduate (‘20) of the Hamden Public School system and a current sophomore at Yale University. She comes equipped with thirteen years of lived experience as a Hamden student, two of which were spent as a Student Representative on the Hamden Board of Education. During her term, she championed student voice, fought for increased transparency, and advocated for a more diverse district calendar, receiving the Princeton Prize in Race Relations for her efforts. 

Mariam’s experience is coupled with a commitment to creatively address the unprecedented needs of the community. Her time in Hamden has taught her that change is achieved when the community is valued and empowered—precisely what her platform aims to accomplish.
