Currently a pre-med senior at the University of Central Florida, I am earning a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Psychology. I was born in Damascus, Syria and moved to the United States at the age of 12. Upon moving, I became cognizant of the many issues that impact refugee and immigrant communities, among other vulnerable communities. This eventually led to my involvement as a Health Policy director in my local Pre-Med AMSA chapter. During this time, I undertook several advocacy projects to spread awareness about global and national health disparities, as well as participated in AMSA’s Health Equity Week of Action. As a National AMSA leader, I am excited to take on a more active role in harboring new and growing current advocacy efforts, as well as supporting fellow members in pursuing action on issues that impassion them. In my free time, I enjoy volunteering in free clinics, reading, playing the piano, playing tennis and exploring new food.
