Hey everyone, my name is Hessann Farooqi. I’m a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences majoring in Economics on the Pre-Law track. I’m originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, so I love hiking and climbing mountains. I’m a big fan of movies (especially the Star Wars movies) and TV shows!
In addition to BU and CAS Student Governments, I also serve as an intern for BU Sustainability and an avid volunteer on several US House, Senate, and Presidential campaigns. I have previously served on the Orientation team as Program Manager for the Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground.
Additionally, I serve on four University committees: the Provost’s Undergraduate Student Advisory Board, the CAS Undergraduate Academic Program Student Advisory Board, the Student Technology Advisory Council, and (my personal favorite) the BU Votes Planning Committee.
If you ever have thoughts on anything, let me know and I can bring it to these committees! I am always more than happy to talk about anything and everything, especially when it comes to improving campus life and getting people more engaged in our government. I’m always down to hear your recommendations for iced coffee (mine is anything with caramel and caffeine). Fun fact: I once pulled an all-nighter and climbed three mountains in one day!
VICE-PRESIDENT OF FINANCE
Hi Fella Terriers!
My name is Shahaf Dan, a senior in CAS studying Computer Science and part of the BA/MS program. I am a transfer student from a community college in California, and am absolutely in love with the BU community. I enjoy hiking, watching cringe TV shows, cooking Mediterranean cuisine, playing basketball, and coding fun little projects.
I am currently a CAS Student Government senator, the Director of Quant in the FinTech Club, the Scribe of the AEPi fraternity, the president of the Myles Residence Hall council, and a project manager in the tech track in TAMID. I am also a software engineer intern in BU Spark!
In this coming year, I look forward to making the most out of BU, and give the most to the student body. I will serve as the VP of finance on the student government executive board. I look forward to assisting the BU community to the best of my ability to become a stronger community as we get out of the pandemic into a new reality. The least I can do the a community that welcomed me so well, is to contribute as much as I can and hope to make it a better place for all.
WHAT WE DO
The Executive Board manages affairs both internally and externally for the Student Government. The Executive Board consists of the President, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Finance, and the Vice President of Internal Affairs.

STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT
Hey Terriers! My name is Nyah Jordan, and I’m so excited to be your next Student Body President. I’m a senior in the College of Communication studying journalism and minoring in political science. A little bit about me is that I’m from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, I’m a resident of the only co-op at BU (Harriet E. Richards House), and I’m a HUGE Marvel fan.
I’ve been a part of student government since my sophomore year, starting off as a Senator for CGS Student Government. I'’m involved in BU as an Events Coordinator for Sisters United, a
writer for the Boston Political Review, and a CGS Dean’s Host.
Student government has been one of the most inspiring and rewarding experiences that I’ve been a part of at BU. Whether it’s a petition on Wellness Days or creating a fundraiser for social justice, student government has shown how much it cares for the student body. BUnited believes that this community is capable of so much greatness, and it would be an honor to uplift the student voice.
Next year, I'm looking forward to continuing working with the student body on food and environmental justice on campus through a StuGov food pantry, creating more wellness spaces, building social programs that help us integrate back to a normal college life, and more. We’re not looking to reinvent the wheel, just to make actionable student government plans that make the college experience better. BUnited is here for you, and we
are so excited to see what the future holds.
If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please don't hesitate to reach out!
