Meet Ali, one of our two summer writing interns working at Watsi this summer. Ali started her collegiate career at Colgate University with a drive to work in healthcare. After two years at Colgate, Ali left upstate New York, completed the EMT training course and spent the summer volunteering in Panama, providing health care to rural island communities.

In the fall, Ali will be finishing her undergraduate degree in Microbial Biology at UC Berkeley.
