Public Health, Cognitive Science

Alyssa W.

Hey, I’m Alyssa! I’m from Acton, Massachusetts, a small town about an hour outside Boston. I’m a Public Health and Spanish double major with an interest in environmental health, which is why I’m minoring in GECS. Outside of class, I’m an editor for the Johns Hopkins News-Letter and I do research with the Hopkins Early Neurodevelopment Lab at the med campus. I also work at the Baltimore Chef Shop in Hampden (it’s a couple doors down from the Charmery!) I love exploring all the different neighborhoods in Baltimore, trying out new restaurants and going to some of the awesome festivals and events.


From orientation to graduation, Hopkins undergrads have 1,359 days to explore the infinite possibilities available to them. It’s these transformative experiences that set the course of their lives and their impact on the world. #1359days
