About Raya: Raya's interest in Public Health began when she started working at a free student-run healthcare clinic, which serves underserved populations. Seeing the health disparities that penetrated the health of individuals because of public policies ignited her passion to learn more and pursue change on a grander scale. Raya has worked on many public health projects at her university through her student government position on issues of sexual assault and mental health resources. With her experience and the resources in Sacramento, she hopes to grow her knowledge of policy to improve the health of the community.
