Assalamualaikum! My name is Mariam Khwaja, and I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Health. I am extremely passionate about community health and finding ways to improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of those in my community. I am so excited to explore my passions at the FYI and learn from the various professionals and researchers that work in the FYI. Inshallah, I plan to pursue a medical degree in the near future and work as a physician. My hobbies include biking, hiking, and traveling with my family and friends.
