Congratulations to you all!!
The Human Health Department has expanded the ways in which Bobbye has navigated her time at Emory through allowing opportunities for engagement in the Atlanta Science Festival where she honed her passion for teaching. After graduation, she will be matriculating into a Masters in Urban Education Program in pursuit of a career in public education.
When she was little, Aleia wanted to be a doctor. However, that was before she fell in love with the Spanish language and culture. She later learned that Human Health—specifically Global Health—was a better fit the role she wanted for herself in future endeavors as a healthcare professional. Now, she is graduating with a degree in Spanish & Portuguese and a minor in Global Health, Culture & Society. She hopes to find meaningful and impactful ways to integrate these passions in order to ensure that communities not only have viable drinking water and true access to health and health-related resources, but also a basis on which they understand and can be understood in a world where the Other is too often marginalized. After working for a while, Aleia plans to pursue a Masters in Public Health.
