Akira Allen

Spelman '22

Hey! My name is Akira Allen and I am a sophomore biology major on the pre-med track at the illustrious Spelman College. I am originally from Washington D.C. but currently reside in Warner Robins, Georgia. From the time I was about 4 I knew I wanted to help people, and I loved science. I mean the first big word I spelled was photosynthesis. So, being a doctor just felt right. I believe being a surgeon will allow me to combine my two passions. In the last 4 years or so I have become very passionate about advocacy and activism. Coming to a place like Spelman has helped me to expand this passion further. I am so excited to be apart of the HerCampus Spelman team as a content writer! I believe we are going to achieve great and meaningful things.
