CLASS OF 2021: Emory College
Pairing relentless curiosity with an openness to opportunities
Woodruff Scholar Karissa Kang winds up her Emory career with the same burst of energy and brilliance with which she started. Next stop: Yale Law School.

 

CLASS OF 2021: OXFORD COLLEGE
Leaving a legacy of leadership and service at Oxford
Dylan Goldberg was the only student leader of a religious organization on the Oxford College campus last fall. He rose to the challenge, finding ways the Jewish Student Union could connect with everyone in the community.

 

CLASS OF 2021: NURSING
Using her own journey through challenges to benefit others
Nursing student Mimi Yu recognizes the importance of focusing on both physical and mental health. Known as an encourager throughout her time on campus, she continues to share affirmations during her countdown to graduation.

 

CLASS OF 2021: BUSINESS
A powerful voice in challenging corporations to address justice
A case note on racial inequalities in American history spurred Willie Sullivan’s desire for corporations to address large societal issues. The result was the inaugural John R. Lewis Racial Justice Case Competition.

 

CLASS OF 2021: LANEY GRADUATE SCHOOL
Personifying the importance of mentorship in graduate school
PhD student Alisina Bazrafshan’s mentoring days began during college in Tehran. He continued that work while studying at Laney Graduate School, promoting the significance of higher education to underserved youth from refugee families in Atlanta.

A ‘heart’ for health, justice and helping others
Honored with a “Heart of Emory” award, MPH student and future HIV epidemiologist Nellie Garlow has dedicated her time to the COVID-19 Outbreak and Response Team, the Rollins Election Day Initiative, and more.

 

CLASS OF 2021: THEOLOGY
Connecting Candler and community during COVID-19
As a child, Alex Revelle recorded church services for members who couldn’t leave their homes. Decades later, that knowledge proved invaluable during the pandemic and will continue to build connections wherever he serves.

 

CLASS OF 2021: MEDICINE
Grateful for the ‘direct medical impact’ of earning her MD
Kristin Limpose reflects on being a doctor with a disability, the importance of listening to patients and what it has been like to complete medical school during a pandemic.

 

CLASS OF 2021: LAW
A career of service, from doctor to social justice lawyer
Suman Malempati left his career as a pediatric oncologist, researcher and associate professor of pediatrics to train as a social justice lawyer because he could “no longer be an observer.”

 

CLASS OF 2021: HONORS
Biana to spotlight rethinking resilience as Emory College class orator
Mikko Biana began working as a steward for community shortly after arriving at Emory. His address as class orator will reinforce that concept, while also reminding graduates they have the power to change narratives.
