currently studying public health at Furman and intends to pursue a career as a healthcare professional, either as a research scientist or direct clinician. Her interest in public health stems from a longstanding commitment to advocating for refugees, migrants, and other displaced persons, specifically in regards to their physical and mental well-being.
