Haroon Noori

During his time at the Monterey Institute, MPA student Haroon Noori, from Kandahar, Afghanistan, has been involved in many exciting activities, both on and off campus. He has visited Google in Silicon Valley to learn how organizations are effectively managed, he has tried Zumba classes, and he even rode a horse for the first time in his life. He advises others to get involved as well, and to seek out different experiences in order to maximize their time in Monterey.

He likes the Monterey Institute, because it's such a small school and everyone comes from a different background. He says that "makes it very unique."
