I want to be the person who gives back to communities in need.

Nathalie Zamora is a public health major with a concentration in culture and society in health at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She realizes the importance of having knowledgeable individuals to care for vulnerable populations and wants to give back to those communities. A first-generation college student, Nathalie has volunteered for the Mobile Health Unit through the Kinesiology and Public Health Department, conducted research on breast cancer awareness among Latina/Indigenous women and worked with Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s Student Diversity and Belonging coalition.

Nathalie’s ultimate calling is to become a physician and give back to communities in need.
