Katya Vera '20

Major: Anthropology
College: Rockefeller
International Experience: Danish Institute for Study Abroad
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark 

My name is Katya Vera and I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico. I grew up in the Central Valley of California and absolutely love my home state! My dream is to become a doctor and I am concentrating in Anthropology to study a more humanized approach to medicine, which I hope will make me a better physician. Since I am especially interested in increasing access to healthcare around the world, I am pursuing certificates in Global Health & Health Policy and Latin American Studies. I enjoy traveling and made it to my 18th country this year! I feel that every country, city and culture I have encounter has opened my mind in a new way. I started a blog this summer for my family and friends to hear about my travels and I hope to continue traveling and writing while constantly learning and bettering myself. Here is the link to my blog post about being a Princeton pre-med student and going abroad!
