Mahad Dahir

A Rising Advocacy Star

Expect great things from Mahad Dahir.

Mahad ran for Vice President of the Associated Students of Highline College (ASHC) and won! He is not only the first person from the Highline Achieve Program, a program for students with disabilities, to serve on the ASHC…he now serves as President of ASHC!

Mahad also graduated from our inaugural Self-Advocate Leadership Training Program (SALT), which helped him advocate for people of color with disabilities. He served as an expert witness at meetings with state legislators!
