Tara is a senior majoring public health and minoring in international development and women’s studies. She is from Chicago, loves animals and biking, and is an appreciator of the arts. She has a profound interest in women’s issues—particularly women’s health issues. Her desire to dedicate her life towards improving the state of women was solidified two years ago when she started working at the local women and children’s shelter for families fleeing domestic violence. Her interest in international women’s health issues brought her last summer to Malawi where she conducted ethnographic research on the diet and customs of pregnant women. Next year she will graduate from BYU and pursue a master’s degree in public health.
