Karishma Ali

Karishma spent 4 years working towards a Public Health Science degree and taking deep dives into global health, child/maternal health, and addressing social determinants of health, both in the US and in Denmark. Over the past 4 years, she created a strong relationship with her community and learned about current social issues through her internship with Community Empowerment Network (CEN) Haiti and volunteering with Maryland Mentor Corps (MMC) and One Tent Health. With CEN Haiti, she demonstrated her passion for global health/development and enhanced her graphic design skills as a digital marketing intern to increase donor involvement, share information and make connections. Her time with MMC shed light on the social issues occurring within the educational system and the systemic impact this has on low-income neighborhoods of color. Meanwhile, volunteering at One Tent Health strengthened her commitment to advancing health and racial equity by providing free services, resources, and information to underserved neighborhoods. In addition to this, she finished up her last semester at the University of Maryland conducting and synthesizing online research from multiple sources to curate her thesis on female genital mutilation as part of my capstone project, thus demonstrating excellent writing skills.
