Miranda Rector (ES '20) is an Anthropology major pursuing a career in both public health and medicine. Studying anthropology has given her an appreciation for the social and behavioral aspects of health. Her goal is to work on finding and implementing sustainable, culturally sensitive interventions and preventative actions. She is particularly interested in sexual and reproductive health and addressing the sociocultural and environmental issues that lead to health disparities. Miranda currently serves as Co-President of the Reproductive Justice Action League at Yale and volunteers with Planned Parenthood. She also volunteers as an advising fellow for Matriculate, mentoring low-income high school students on their path to college, and writes and performs in VOKE, Yale's first LGBTQ+ spoken word and poetry group. In her free time, you can catch her drinking coffee, taking long walks around campus, listening to Andrea Gibson, or reading for fun!
