Joyce L.

Oxford Ambassador at Emory University

Class of 2023

Hometown: Valdosta, GA

Major: Biology

Secondary Major: Economics


My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Trying the amazing food on Buford Highway. There are SO many cultural restaurants and shops, so there are always new things to try.

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

On the nature trails with friends admiring all the squirrels on campus!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is Midnight Pancakes because I love breakfast foods and it's always so exciting to see the dining hall decked out like a winter wonderland. It's such a wonderful break from the stress of finals and also a super fun community event!

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class has been Psychology: Drugs and Behavior because it tied together science with social issues and history. This class showed me how my interests in science and health can directly inform politics and socioeconomics to have large-scale impacts.

I'm passionate about...

Food Justice Hiking/Backpacking Cancer Research Economics Healthcare Equity
