Our Stories: Hejia, Scholar (2021)

Hejia, also known as Allison, is excited to soon be attending the University of Maryland in College Park. She chose UMD because it will allow her easy access to DC to involve herself in ongoing policy and activism movements, while also being close to home.

Although Allison is somewhat undecided as to what major to pursue, she is considering a pre-law track or similar career that will allow her to help people and defend those who are unable to defend themselves. In college, she is looking forward to meeting new people, learning in a diverse environment, and exploring new opportunities.
