Ishrat Kamal-Ahmed ~ Immigration and Programs Coordinator

Email : ishrat.kamal-ahmed@mnsu.edu

Bio : Hello, I am Ishrat Kamal-Ahmed and serve as the immigration and program coordinator for the International Center. I was born in Chittagong, Bangladesh and moved to the United States in 1994. Now I have two places that I can call home! My bachelor degree in Biology: Toxicology and graduate degree in Community Health were earned from the Minnesota State University, Mankato. Currently I am in a pre-doctoral Public Health program at the University of Minnesota. My function in the office is to oversee immigration compliance. I also serve as a host advisor for students attending the university under the scholarship provided by the U.S. Department of State. Besides that, I am involved in student advising and counseling. I am a mother of two children and will soon have my third child. Books, humor, action movies, food, hard rock music and sleep are somethings I love in life. I strongly value education and knowledge and believe that the United States is one of the best places for a life-long learner to pursue his or her dreams, especially for women who very frequently do not receive opportunities and supports to reach their potentials.
