Senior Public Health Fellow, Skorton Center for Health Initiatives
Grace majored in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and minored in Global Health, Inequality Studies, and South Asian Studies. As a student, she took part in Alternative Spring Breaks and Students Against the Sexual Solicitation of Youth to serve Girls Educational and Mentoring Services, and her experiences working with victims of commercial sexual exploitation, in conjunction with experiences serving underprivileged communities in Cleveland, OH, Chicago, IL, and Olevolos, Tanzania sparked her passion for public health. Her time conducting independent research in western Nepal about women’s experiences with menstruation and taking part in a team capstone project to address sexual assault on Cornell’s campus strengthened her resolve to learn more about community-based culture change approaches in public health. She is excited to use her time as a fellow to grow as a young professional in the field and give back to the Cornell community.
