Zina is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, but now resides in Chicago, IL. She is majoring in Biology on the Pre-Med track and minoring in Global Public health studies. Zina is highly passionate about global health disparities regarding young females, inequalities within the educational realm, and cultural/ traditional expression through art, dance, and speech. Zina hopes to utilize her time at Boston College by raising awareness of various health disparities and bridging the gap in healthcare between first and third-world countries by helping technological advancements in medical facilities in low-income countries. Zina also admires artistic expression and therefore has a passion for traditional art forms across many different cultures.
On campus, Zina is involved with the F.I.S.T.S dance team and 48 Hours council, while off-campus she is involved with SCRIPT under Boston Children’s hospital and Xanderena foundation.
When Zina is not laughing with friends or stressed in the library she is braiding hair, watching Netflix, or simply cooking food. She hopes to contribute to the vibrant energy and an uplifting mood within the women's center so that all students continue to see this place as a home away from home.
