This award recipient entered Rutgers with an ignited passion for social justice based on their experience in learning history through a social justice lens in high school. They decided to pursue a dual degree in Public Health from Bloustein and SEBS because they felt motivated to make positive change in environmental racism and injustice. This led into their various pathways of leadership opportunities that they thrived within. If you examine their involvement, it reads as a resume intentionally built to prove that motivation. They have served as a Diversity Peer Educator within the Honors College since their sophomore year; led extended orientation retreats for incoming first-year students that would help foster a stronger sense of belonging before even setting foot on-campus; were a Research Assistant with Aresty to link residential environments to known physical disorders; served as an Alternative Breaks Site Leader to do hurricane recovery and environmental restoration in Puerto Rico; and were a Research Intern with the Cancer Health Justice Lab.
