Emily Ramírez Hernández ’09
Emily Ramírez Hernández is the program coordinator for the New Orleans Citizen Diplomacy Council.
How She Got There: She majored in Latin American studies; became interested in the social issues introduced in her anthropology, history, and religious studies classes; studied abroad in Mexico City and Viña del Mar, Chile; came home to make a difference.
Today, I interact with people at my job from Ghana, Colombia, Russia, Tuvalu, Pakistan, Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Bulgaria, Afghanistan, and essentially every nation with which the U.S. government has a diplomatic relationship, and what I learned at Loyola allows me to have a better understanding of our global neighbors.
Shaawn Ali, '08
Dr. Shaawn Ali '08 is chief resident at a Miami hospital, finishing up medical school and a program that had him traveling around the Middle East practicing medicine.
How He Got There: He wanted to be involved in the local health care system, majored in pre-med psychology, conceived and conducted a study on campus with his faculty mentor, won first place overall in the social sciences category at the Louisiana Academy of Sciences, turned down an offer for a full-time position with the Saints to focus on his studies in medicine.
In an age of globalization and multiculturalism, I feel Loyola was able to give me a head start in meeting and learning about people from various backgrounds and beliefs. I feel this exposure has allowed me to relate better with people I come across on a daily basis in my medical practice.
