Born in Sweden to Iranian parents, Parham has plenty of stamps in his passport. At a young age he swooped across the Atlantic Ocean with his family to Milwaukee. From early on, Parham has been surrounded by diverse cultures, communities, and perspectives. His experiences have led to active leadership roles in Pi Kappa Phi and serving as the first vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion on the Interfraternity Council. Parham has also been engaged as a mentor at the Center for Academic Excellence, an enriching community of students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education. As DEI director of the Senior Class Office, Parham hopes to use his platform to represent unheard voices and prompt challenging but necessary conversations surrounding campus.
