Rezina Habtemariam, Acting Director of Student Life

Hi! My name is Rezina Habtemariam and I am the Program Support Supervisor in the Student Leadership Center. Although I was born in southern California, I was raised mainly in Seattle. I attended Shoreline Community College and later transferred to Seattle University. When I reflect on my college experience, I think about my time at SCC. Having amazing professors and the opportunity to study abroad in South Africa contributed to a wonderful experience. I graduated from SU with my degree in International Studies and Global African Studies. I enjoy working with college students and being able to help create a dynamic college experience for all students. I absolutely love to eat, dance, do yoga, read, write and watch movies!
