Hello! My Name is Marissa and I am a second year Global Health Student with a focus on Infectious Diseases. I was born and raised in Dalton, Georgia. I graduated from Dalton State College in May 2016 with a Bachelor’s in Biology with a Chemistry minor. I am currently working as a REAL (Rollins Earn and Learn) Laboratory Assistant with Emory University and CDC where I am learning more about public health research in regards to infectious diseases. I came to Rollins not only because of the proximity to my hometown, but because of the incredibly inviting and friendly atmosphere Rollins provided during my multiple visits. Everyone from professors, ADAPs, staff, and students are always more than happy to lend a helping hand. You will not regret coming to Rollins! This is truly a great community to be a part of! As a Georgia native, please feel free to email me any questions you have about Atlanta life or activities to do outside of Atlanta!
Hi! My name is Anjelica, but most of my friends know me as Jelly. I am a second year Global Health student with a focus in Infectious Disease. Before coming to Rollins, I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Indonesia where I taught English. For my practicum, I was fortunate enough to return to Indonesia with UNICEF to work on a Water and Sanitation project. My REAL position is at CDC in the Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Disease department with a focus in WASH. At Rollins, I am president of the Rollins Peace Corps Community, and I am currently pursuing the Complex Humanitarian Emergencies certificate. As an Atlanta native, I absolutely love this city and everything it has to offer! Selecting Rollins has been a wonderful decision and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm with you!
