Student Spotlight: Nusrat

posted in: Scholar Spotlights | 0

Nusrat, CRLS Class of 2018 recipient of the Dr. David A. Link Scholarship for the Health
Professions, now enrolled at Simmons College, told us:

“My first name means helper in Arabic. In Islam, it’s believed that people uphold the meaning of their
name. My friends describe me as ambitious and optimistic, so my personal goals are just the same.
I’ve always wanted to help those around me and I have a passion for teaching and advocating for
health. I plan to intertwine those passions with a degree in psychology and intend on being committed
to social justice issues and work to provide an equal level playing field in schools, in healthcare, and
within my community. With psychology, I can use what I learn about the human mind, behavior, and
interaction to find a way to help the school and hospital communities.”

Congratulations, Nusrat!
