I am currently a senior 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 plan to move onto graduate school and pursue a Masters in Public Health in the field of community-oriented primary care and program planning.
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 Senior Peer Facilitator and traditional Peer Facilitator in the AU Experience Program. I also serve as a council member with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution Services. I was the Student Co-Director of the SPA Leadership Program for the 2019-2020 academic year and a second-year TA for the 2020-2021 academic year. In addition, I balance these positions with a rigorous course load.
Off-campus, I have interned for The AIDS Institute, The Root Cause Coalition, and The Institute For Medicaid Innovation to pursue my interest in the fields of healthcare and advocacy.
During my four years here at AU, I hope to create a lasting impact through community engagement and academic success.
