Graduation Spotlight: Joyce Ou

[b]Where will you/ where did you go to school?[/b]
I will attend Yale University in the fall.
[b]What did you/what will you study?[/b]
Ideally, I hope to double major in molecular/cellular biology and global affairs, although those majors are tentative--I want to explore various areas of study in college. I do have a particular interest in studying global health through integrating these two majors.
[b]When did you become involved with Givology and why? What do you do for Givology?[/b]
Driven by a desire to break out of the classroom environment and make real world impact, I became involved with Givology in March 2014. I was drawn to Givology's mission, as my own personal experiences definitely shaped my own values to be similar to those of Givology. Givology's cause is something I'm passionate about and it inspired me to become more involved. I run Givology's magazine, which essentially means I edit all the articles and create the layouts, keeping the magazine on schedule and tying everything into a final product.
[b]How has working with Givology shaped what you want to do in the future?[/b]
Working with Givology has definitely expanded my perspective by allowing me to become more conscious of the world. It has instilled in me a greater feeling of responsibility as a global citizen. Because of Givology, I now desire to become involved in world affairs and continue expanding my understanding of the world, both through academic courses in college as well as hands-on experiences. I definitely hope that my career in the future will, in some form or another, help improve the quality of life in other countries.
[b]How do you think your chosen major will help you impact your community and the global community?[/b]
Assuming I stick with the two majors that I'm currently considering, I'm hoping integrating to work in public or global health. I hope to use what I learn in college to improve healthcare systems both domestically and abroad, as there are various significant issues with healthcare systems today that I believe should be addressed.
[b]What is the greatest lesson you've learned from working with Givology that you will carry with you in the future?[/b]
Givology strongly believes in the power of small changes, and I've seen the impact that the accumulation of these small changes have over time. This is the greatest lesson I've learned--you can always act locally to enact change.
