President: Sana Saeed, 2019

Currently, Sana works as the Associate Chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania. She graduated with a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School (HDS) pursuing Unitarian Universalist ministry. Born in Manchester, UK she moved to the USA when she was sixteen. As a dual citizen, she grew up in a Pakistani home with the fortune of learning Urdu, Punjabi, as well as, English. Her upbringing inspired her love for traveling. Hence, she has traveled to more than thirty countries so far. She became interested in Unitarian Universalism, after being hired as a Director of Youth Ministry for the UU Church of Arlington, where she frequently was asked the question, “What is a Muslim doing working in a church?”. Since then she’s been immersed in UU and Muslim communities through various interfaith endeavors and hopes to become one of the handful of UU Muslim ministers’ part of the UU community today.
