Congratulations to Global Leader Scholarship recipient Adanna Amaechi from the Society chapter at Montclair State University.
Adanna Amaechi grew up in Nigeria, where she witnessed the effects of corruption and substandard health-related services. That experience propelled her to study public health (with a minor in economics) at the undergraduate level so she could understand the correlation between inappropriate allocation of resources and barriers to development. Adanna’s career goal is to promote civic empowerment and engagement as an intervention to address social development challenges.
Shelby Liggett is a rising senior majoring in Radiologic Science at Avila University in Kansas City, Mo., and currently holds the Community Service Chair position for her Society chapter.

Zach, tell us a little about yourself.
I hail from an arctic tundra also known as Central New York. Born on the shore of Lake Ontario, I guess you could argue that I lived in fear of polar bear attacks, but that was more of an irrational fear. My only comfort through the harsh winter was the thought that soon summer would arrive, promising at least one day of warmth where I could roll up my snow pant legs and soak up the sun.
