Project Description

Leah Berolzheimer is from Chapel Hill, NC. Leah’s gap year gave her the chance to shadow a HIV clinic in Togo, teach English in Kenya, and teach students about civic engagement in Hungary. Her experiences learning about public health on her gap year inspired her to pursue a degree in nursing at UNC. Now she is president of a committee focused on international development at Campus Y, UNC’s Center for Social Justice; works with UNC hospitals and Carolina for Kibera, an NGO housed at UNC; and recently won a Global Health Award for a nursing internship in Thailand.
