Health Studies Intern
University of Washington, Bothell
My name is Karina Karmali and I am a senior at UW-Bothell majoring in Health Studies. In the future I would love to work in global health in areas such as women's health, poverty alleviation, and climate change action. I find joy in helping others live healthier and longer lives and I enjoy learning about the rapidly changing issues of global health. This past summer I had the chance to work with Americorps, as a member of the HungerCorps COVID-19 alleviation team to pack meals for youth and low-income families. I was partnered with the YMCA and I was so grateful to have the opportunity to serve the community and learn about the needs of my community through public health. In my free time I enjoy connecting with friends and family and playing tennis.
