Zhara Edwards

30th Class, 2023-2024

Zhara Edwards is from Cleveland, Ohio, where she graduated with a B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Public Health from Case Western Reserve University. Zhara’s career interests include child and adolescent health, and hopes to work towards eliminating food insecurity for students in need. One of Zhara’s core beliefs is that a person’s locality should not determine their access to food, education, or other resources. Hunger and poverty are key issues that Zhara would like to address because of their potentially detrimental impact on a young person’s health and development.
