STUDENT PROFILE - RAVAHN ENAYATI, Class of 2018

Ravahn Enayati

"Because of the Stamps Scholarship money doesn't have to be a limiting factor in my education.

Additionally, it gives me a lot of opportunities to go travel. This last spring break I actually went to Nicaragua through the Holden Center, which provided me an extra lens to view public health on a more international scale - learning about different cultures, learning about the infrastructure that works to help people in different settings. That was a really good life experience, and helped me in my road to hopefully pursue medicine in the future."
