Leila Alimi

Coordinator, Student Employment


I am a first generation American that grew up in Maryland and am very thrilled to be a part of the Catholic University community! I graduated from Salisbury University with a double major in International Studies and Spanish. I took part in many organizations throughout campus including the Spanish National Honors Society, Students Helping Honduras, and the Organization for Latin American Students; all of which have allowed me to represent and appreciate the Latinx culture while introducing me to the benefits of having diverse backgrounds in a community.

Although Salisbury was on the Eastern shore, and gave me a sense of home, it is nothing compared to the up and moving energy of D.C. I have always had a strong interest in creating new connections and trying new things, which is why I am very excited to be the Center for Academic and Career Success’ own Student Employment Coordinator.

I am looking forward to working with students who are a part of the Federal Work Study program, and navigating through the programs that get students involved in campus activities. I am a huge advocate for gaining new experiences and insight and cannot wait to see what is in store for me here at CUA!
