Shani Legore: 2014 Multicultural Scholar

 

“It’s not about what I can do to change the health status of a society, but how effective I can work with others to bring change within their social condition.” — Shani Legore

Shani Legore is a senior at Southern Connecticut State University. Her inquisitive nature and involvement with a resettlement organization for refuges, asylum seekers and other displaced individuals has compelled Shani to strive to become a medical doctor and public health researcher.

Shani’s grandfather suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed. This made her yearn even more to tackle medical and public health issues and support the American Heart Association.
