OIS Student Workers

The Office of International Study works with a variety of students, including a group of ambassadors who are available to provide additional support and resources to students typically underrepresented in study abroad and a UK Peer Advisor with regular advising hours throughout the semester to assist students planning to go to the UK.

Bios will continue to be added throughout the start of the Fall 2021 semester. 


OIS Student Intern and Marketing Assistant

Hi! My name is Maheen Haq and I’m a sophomore intending to major in International Relations- Economics. This past year I studied abroad in Athens, Greece during T4. Among many other incredible experiences, I got to take classes while sitting next to the Parthenon, learn about political activism by studying real street graffiti, and have a field study trip to the Peloponnese. I absolutely loved my time abroad and want to make sure everyone feels supported enough to go on an adventure of their own. I am especially interested in helping students without international experience feel comfortable and prepared for their time abroad. I am here to help throughout the process! You can contact me at


UK Peer Advisor

Hi! My name is Angelina Zhang and I'm a senior majoring in Chemistry and Political Science. In Spring 2021, I studied abroad at Oxford for both my majors. As a double major in different fields, I'd be happy to talk about how I planned to be able to study abroad and fulfill requirements, especially if you're interested in focusing on STEM classes. Despite the lockdown in the UK, I had a lot of fun exploring the city of Oxford by foot and would be happy to chat. I'm happy to help in any way possible. Feel free to reach out at  



Study Abroad Ambassadors

Hello everyone! My name is Lidewij Florusbosch, and I’m a sophomore planning on majoring in Peace and Justice Studies and Science, Technology and Society with a concentration in physics (individual major). Outside of school, I like reading and playing flute in Wellesley’s Chamber Music Society. I studied abroad through CET in Amman, Jordan Spring 2021. I had a great time studying abroad, and navigating a new culture, even if being neurodivergent and struggling with mental illness made it more challenging at times. If you’d like to talk more about studying abroad as someone who has a disability or as a STEM major, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at!
