Aicha Louriqate

I am a biological sciences major. I'm interested in The Aafiyah Project because of its outreach to under-resourced and overlooked minority groups, some of them being communities that I myself identify with. My future aspirations involve medical school and a career in healthcare. II hope that through volunteering, I will benefit the communities that The Aafiyah Project serves as well as improve my communication and interpersonal skills as a future medical professional.

Anna Boyer

I  am so excited to be a part of The Aafiyah Project this year! I am a biology major with a concentration in nursing and a minor in gender and women’s studies. I plan on getting my masters in nursing in the hopes to eventually become a Nurse Practitioner Ob/Gyn. The Aafiyah Project seemed like a great fit for me because of our shared interest in healthcare disparities and the health of women and children. I am excited to begin working with the organization.

I'm excited to work with The Aafiyah Project and see what we can accomplish during the coming months!
