“Two life-long goals came from ‘being different’: serving minorities and those in need that are viewed differently, and never giving up no matter what people say.” — Maryam Khazraee
Maryam Khazraee is a third year at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida. After being born with a respiratory infection, Maryam grew up with health and financial obstacles. She faced harsh bullying and discrimination for being “different,” which lead to her mission to become an academic professor teaching healthcare providers and running her own ambulatory care clinic dedicated to serving minorities.
