About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Henna Battan, and I am a fourth-year student at the University of California, Davis. My major is Managerial Economics. Prior to transferring to Davis, I attended my local community college where I was able to recognize my passion for helping others. Furthermore, I’m hoping to pursue a career in nonprofits and/or public service.
Outside of academics, I enjoy being involved in extracurricular activities on campus. With the remainder of my time, I enjoy spending it with my family and friends.
