Hi! I am currently a junior at Duke University studying public policy. Though I am not personally affected by IBD, my efforts to find a cure are driven by my mom's struggle with Crohn's. Beginning in the summer of 2013, I started the Crohn's and Colitis Teen Group in order to work with other NYC teenagers who are passionate about finding cures for Crohn's and Colitis. Throughout high school, I was in charge of coordinating the group's meetings and initiating events. One highlight for me was when I was honored as the 2015 Rising Star at the foundation's annual Women of Distinction event. Through this experience, I was able to provide the perspective of a family member in my speech and encourage more people--not just those who have IBD--to take action. Now that I am in college, I am excited to take my efforts to the next level with the National Council of College Leaders. I am specifically looking forward to collaborating with other members who go to different schools and are from all parts of the nation! Going forward, I know that I will use my unique perspective as a family member to encourage all people--regardless of whether or not they personally have IBD--to help find cures.
