I’m very passionate about mental health advocacy, especially destigmatizing mental illness and removing barriers to treatment. Through my involvement with RAMHA, an organization that promotes mental health awareness at Rice University, l want to work towards destigmatizing mental illness on college campuses. I am also researching ways to improve the treatments of mental illnesses at Baylor College of Medicine and through the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, am working with BPSOS-Houston to create a mental health program for the Vietnamese refugee population. I’m excited to work with JED to address mental health disparities within educational institutions and make a change in the world.
