Modern Day Rulers
My name is Vanessa Jackson and I am a 22 year-old college student, originally from California. I was an athlete throughout high-school, and was blessed to receive a scholarship to further both my education and my athletic career as a Track and Field athlete at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Running for four years at the university, I set two school records in both the 200m and 400m dash. I also excelled academically as a McNair Scholar, conducting research and presenting at various symposiums. Right now I am applying to Graduate programs to pursue a career in Global Health. My passion is to help others by being a part of the movement of strengthening global health equity and by working to prolong the lives and health of individuals in a world where health issues are steadily increasing.
