She is also involved in research with the Semel Neuroscience and Human Behavior lab that focuses on developing different treatments for children with OCD, tics, and other anxiety disorders.

My name is Jadynne Zane, a current senior at Maui High School. In fall of 2021, I plan on attending the University of Southern California, majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a pre-professional emphasis on medicine. Through AAMS, I discovered my passion for medicine. Currently, I aspire to pursue a career in surgical medicine.
I am currently a Junior at Stanford University studying Biomedical Computation and minoring in Modern Languages with a concentration in Spanish and Yoruba. I’m interested in the intersection of medicine, computation, and communities. My development in computer science has been informed significantly by my interest in connecting with people and gaining an appreciation of diversity in communities. In particular, I am interested in how to utilize and leverage data to affect change—making particular systems more effective, finding ways to establish equitable practices, ensuring solutions are inclusive—and have a positive impact on communities within a healthcare context. I am currently putting these ideas into practice as a biocomputational researcher in a skin cancer lab in the Department of Dermatology at Stanford.
Micaela is a student at Stanford University majoring in International Relations with a focus on Social Development and Well-Being. Her work so far has centered on education equity and human rights, and she is interested in working on global health. She is from La Paz, Bolivia.
I am going to become a sophomore at Cornell University majoring in Human Biology, Health and Society and minoring in Business. I am passionate about looking at global health issues from a diverse perspective which includes the physiological, social, and economic dimensions. In the future, I want to practice surgical medicine as well as participating in a medical business that can further support a positive impact in the healthcare field. Aside from school work, I am involved in a pre-health society, where students with a pre-health emphasis come together in a collaborative environment. I am also passionate about spreading cultural awareness by participating in the Korean American Student Association. To relieve stress, I also play ice hockey with my friends in the intramural team.
