Hello! My name is Reni Ajukwu and I am a current Master of Public Health Student graduating May 2024 in the Global Health Track. Before becoming a full-time graduate student at USC, I completed my undergraduate degree at USC as well where I studied Human Biology with a minor in Public Health. I am also a part of the progressive degree program in the Department of Population and Public Health Services which means I started my graduate degree while I was still an undergraduate! I am currently a peer advisor at the MPH Career services and I will be working alongside the other career advisors to provide my peers with any career support or advice that is needed! In the future, I hope to work in the health equity field within the biotechnology industry to ensure that minority groups are provided equal access to clinical trials and groundbreaking drug therapies. I look forward to talking to you all soon. Fight On!
