Hi! My name is Johan Ayala, a first-year PLME student at Brown University interested in concentrating in Public Health and/or Neuroscience. I am a Peruvian-American first-generation student, from Union City, NJ, aspiring to become a physician and advance the field of medicine through research and advocacy. As an active member of the Lesson Planning Committee of the Community Health Advocacy Program (CHAP), I want to create a positive influence on the holistic well-being of the Providence youth through engaging, yet educational activities. Malala Yousafzai said it best "One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world." Looking forward to learning with you!
