Celia Islam

I am a senior graduating with a B.A. in Sociology. During my time at GW, I have been involved with the GW Orchestra, She's the First, and GW GlobeMed. I also currently volunteer for Watsi, a non-profit organization that works as a crowdfunding platform to provide medical treatments to underserved populations around the world. As a part of the Seven-Year BA/MD program, I will be starting medical school here at GW in the fall. I look forward to using the skills and tools gained from my time as a Sociology major both in medical school and in the future as a physician.
