Hi friends of God 🙂 My name is Izzy Shahmirza! I am so beyond excited to serve at the UCC on the Liturgy Committee with my super awesome co-leaders, Claire and Jennifer! If you are interested in writing Prayers of the Faithful, bread baking for Mass, planning Mass on the Grass or Ash Wednesday Mass, having Adoration, or jamming out through Praise and Worship, then we absolutely want you to come join us! The UCC has DEFINITELY become my home away from home- the UCC is a welcoming community filled with joy, laughter, prayer, and family! I am blessed to be able to be a part of an incredible community!
I am a second year, Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology major from Santa Cruz, California. I love playing sports, especially basketball, adventuring in the mountains or by the beach, eating Persian and Mexican food, and serving others with the Salesians. Please do not hesitate to ask me questions about the UCC, UCLA life, or anything at all! But more importantly, I want to be able to get to know each and every one of you! 🙂 Study hard, explore, smile and laugh, meet new people, stay focused on your goals, have an amazing time at UCLA, and always keep your faith and trust in God!
“Peace begins with a smile.” ~Saint Mother Teresa
