Student Advisors 2023-24
Hey everyone! I’m Lamara and I’m so excited to be an SA this year. I’m a senior from Virginia concentrating in Neurobiology and Human Behavior. I chose to major in HumBio because I’m really interested in studying the human experience through both the natural and social sciences. Last summer, through HB-Rex, I was able to conduct research in the Laboratory of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, where I am currently doing an honors thesis.
Outside of HumBio, I am part of the leadership team for Stanford Women in Medicine and volunteer as a crisis text-line counselor. In my free time, you can find me trying new restaurants, hiking, and doing all the New York Times puzzles. I’m happy to talk about all things HumBio, pre-med, studying abroad, and more. I can’t wait to meet you!
Hello everyone! My name is Xochilt (pronounced so-chee) (she/her). I come from Palmdale, CA, and I'm a FLI (first-gen/low-income) senior with a concentration in Healthcare Advocacy and Policy for Marginalized Communities. My passion lies in expanding healthcare policies and resources to historically underserved populations in medicine. One of the reasons I chose to study HumBio is its interdisciplinary nature, which allows me to explore all my interests. After my time here at Stanford, I'm planning to attend graduate school to pursue a Master's in Public Health, with a concentration in Health Policy, and then proceed to Medical School.
Outside of HumBio, I'm thrilled to continue volunteering at Cardinal Free Clinics, where I serve as a Spanish Interpreter Coordinator. Additionally, I am President of Stanford's first and only Indigenous Latine VSO. In my free time, you'll find me going to concerts, collecting vinyl records, sipping iced matcha lattes, and applying lip gloss.
I'm eager to get to know all of you better and learn about your interests too! <3
Hi everyone! My name is Ella and I’m so excited to be an SA this year! I am a senior from New Jersey concentrating in Social Determinants of Health and Environmental Justice. I’m planning on going to medical school after college and pursuing a career in primary care and community health. I chose to major in Humbio because it allowed me to explore new academic areas while diving deep into subjects I’m passionate about, like health equity and environmental justice.
Outside of Humbio, I am part of the Stanford Environmental Justice Working Group, serve as a student board member for the Partnerships for Climate Justice in the Bay Initiative, and volunteer with the Stanford Flu Crew. In my free time, I love to bake, try out new hikes, and make collages. I’m excited to see you all in the SA office this year!
Hey everyone! My name is Sofia, and I’m so happy to be one of your HumBio SA’s this year. I’m a senior from Hewlett, NY and Im concentrating in Global Public Health and Anatomy, and I’m also completing a Coterm in Epidemiology and Clinical Research. I’m very passionate about global health and immigrant health advocacy, an interest that’s rooted in being a daughter of two immigrant parents, from Colombia and Ecuador. This past summer I went to Oaxaca on the BOSP Community Health in Oaxaca trip, and last summer I went to Cape Town through BOSP and I learned a lot about the healthcare system in both Oaxaca and Cape Town, and hope to share what I learned there with my classmates and the other communities that I belong to on campus! I hope to continue immersing myself in learning experiences that can enrich my knowledge of global health and all of its intersections, so that as a future doctor, I can provide the most culturally competent care possible for patients.
Outside of HumBio, I am very excited to be one of the Directors of my acapella group, Stanford Talisman, and continue as the Co-Vice President of the Global Health Student Council! I also am excited to continue as a Spanish Interpreter for Cardinal Free Clinics, and will continue working on recruitment for Stanford Habla! I’m so excited to meet all of you and learn about your interests!
Heyoo! My name is Alina and I am a senior studying Human Biology and Math. My concentration within Humbio is Aging and Development, which means I get to take a wide range of classes that focus on different parts of our lifespans. I’m also pre-med, and am interested in becoming a primary care physician or geriatrician. My favorite part of Humbio is the flexibility on what classes I take: I like that every class I take I am genuinely excited about! I’m also doing my honors thesis on the genetics behind diabetes and have enjoyed seeing my project progress since my freshman year.
I’m from San Diego, and I absolutely love anything outside: backpacking, hiking, camping,…you name it. I am on the Stanford Triathlon Team so I spend a good amount of my time either biking, running or swimming. I also lead trips for the Outdoor Center (including SPOT!) and love getting to take people out to the wilderness during the quarter—such a good escape from the stress of life and school!! I’m a huge indie/folk music fan and love listening to Mt. Joy, the Lumineers, or Head and the Heart. Can’t wait to meet y’all!
