"I am honored to be a Browne Fellow and am so eager to develop in civic leadership through experiential learning. Service is such a tangible way to impact our community, and I am looking forward to working with and learning from partnering community organizations. It is such a privilege to be trained up in this way; I’m excited for the conversations and dialogue I’ll get to have with other fellows in this cohort and folks in the Pittsburgh community. I'm interested in public health, social determinants of health, public policy, and education. I’m fascinated with how these different disciplines and fields can work together to create meaningful social and economic change. Throughout this fellowship, I hope to be a learner and listener—open to diverse thought and new experiences."

I am honored to be recognized as a Browne Leadership fellow! I am eager and passionate to be involved in this academic community and am looking forward to the new experiences it holds. The city has so much potential for creativity and learning, and I am eager to experience this first hand. The environment and resources that are available to us are important factors in unlocking this creativity.

"As a Browne Fellow, I am incredibly excited to learn and grow as an individual alongside such a wonderful cohort and serve local communities in a city that I am starting to see as my home. With the intention of pursuing a dual degree in Microbiology and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, I hope to bring awareness toward healthcare disparities from an intersectional perspective in my future career. Beyond healthcare, my personal interests include mental health advocacy, public speaking, and the arts. I am so fortunate to have had a number of wonderful experiences and opportunities thus far at the University of Pittsburgh. My education has been such a privilege, and I have full intention of utilizing it to positively impact communities reminiscent of the ones my family came from."
