Amber Haywood ’21
Concentration: Behavioral and Evolutionary Neuroscience
The issue of public concern I’m passionate about is … the overprescription of pharmaceutical drugs, and learning about historical health disparities that affect Black people.
As an Engaged Ambassador, I … encourage students to engage with communities that they may not be familiar with.
I got involved because I … wanted to deepen my understanding of Engaged Cornell and learn how to be active in community engagement in the Ithaca area.
My friends would say I’m … goofy.
Best Cornell memory (so far!): Traveling to Nicaragua with strangers and coming back as friends!
Fun fact: I love the Bachelor and Bachelorette.
Future plans: Obtain my M.D. and become a physician!
