An introduction from Sameen:
I am delighted to join the Asian Pacific American Center at the Smithsonian Institution as the development specialist. I look forward to supporting the development goals for IAHP and APA Center Initiatives. Before coming to the Smithsonian I was working with the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area. I was responsible for their development efforts and coordinated the Embassy Concert Series for Global Classrooms D.C.
The series provides local elementary and middle school students with the opportunity to learn about other cultures and global issues through cultural exhibition and musical diplomacy. I hold a J.D. from Nova Southeastern University and a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Florida.
