Anahyta Aazaad Burn

Anahyta Aazaad Burn 2019 Scholar, Mercer Island High School

"I once thought that empowerment of women was simply an effort towards justice and equality. Today, as a global citizen raised in three very different cultures, I see this quest as much more than seeking equity. Empowerment of women is one key element in approaching problems that threaten the very core of the human project on this planet."

Update: Will attend Clark Honors Program at the University of Oregon
