Quanisha Morrow, originally from South Bend, Ind., is a senior at Indiana University Bloomington studying community health in the School of Public Health.
Morrow, a 21st Century Scholar and Groups Scholar, has traveled to New York, New Orleans, and all the way to Rwanda through her involvement in clubs at IU. “Indiana University has opened up so many avenues for me and has forced me to step out of my box,” Morrow said. “Being a first-generation college student, I didn't know anything about the college process. IU welcomed me with open arms and has allowed me to be comfortable in a home away from home.”
Morrow, who is also a member of the executive board for Minority Students in Public Health, hopes to find a career where she can help minority and underrepresented populations become healthier. “I believe that the health of everyone is important and that no one should suffer as a result of his or her culture,” Morrow said. “I just want to help those who can't help themselves.”
