Class of 2024
Majors in History and Global Health; Minor in Asian American & Diaspora Studies
I’m a senior from Atlanta, GA co-majoring in Global Health and History, minoring in Asian American & Diaspora studies, and on the pre-med track. I am one of the co-presidents of Duke’s chapter of Partners in Health Engage. I’m also a design editor for the Duke Medical Ethics Journal and a volunteer with the Duke Benefits Enrollment Center and Duke Hospital, and I work in the Walsh lab researching the effects of childhood cancer diagnoses on parents/caregivers. I spent this past summer doing global health field research in Roatán, Honduras, researching the needs of people with disabilities. In my free time, I love exploring the food scene in Durham/the Triangle area!
Favorite Class: One of my favorite classes that I’ve taken at Duke is History of Global Health (History 203). This class was a perfect intersection of my interests (and my two majors) and has been foundational in my understanding of the development of public health, the colonial background of global health, what it means to decolonize global health, and how our past experiences of epidemics/pandemics and state intervention into disease influence our current responses.
