I am currently a Junior at The American University in Washington, D.C., studying with a double major in Public Health and Justice, Law, and Criminology as well as a Certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies. I hope to potentially move onto graduate school and pursue a Masters in Public Health in the field of community-oriented primary care or humanitarian health.
Throughout my academic career, I have stood out as a hardworking and conscientious individual. My diligence, persistence, and concentration have only furthered my success in my educational pursuits. In addition, my discipline and focus have allowed me to develop into a dedicated student. During my time at American University, I have belonged to both the AU Scholars Program and SPA Leadership Program. I have also worked with the Career Center on campus as a federal work-study student and served as a Peer Facilitator in the AU Experience program, as well as tutored student-athletes on campus and serve as a council member with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution Services. Recently, I have been selected to serve as the Student Co-Director of the SPA Leadership Program for the 2019-2020 academic year. In addition, I balance these positions with a rigorous course load.
Outside of AU, I have interned for both The AIDS Institute and The Root Cause Coalition to pursue my interest in understanding the systemic causes that give way to the social determinants of health and use this knowledge to support and advocate for those in need and the causes I believe in.
During my four years here at AU, I hope to create a lasting impact through community engagement and academic success.
