Pattah has also been a dynamic leader as the president of the Chaldean American Student Association and co-founder and treasurer of the Pre-Physician Assistant Club.

Her nominators describe her as one of the most caring, hard-working and humble individuals, and someone who stands up for those who are unable to stand up for themselves. They also describe her as a woman of tremendous faith who volunteers at her church and teaches others about the Catholic faith. She encourages others to strengthen their own faith and leads by example, guided by prayer and her relationship with God.
