Anna Lee is a junior majoring in anthropology and pre-health. Lee joined the Building Bridges program in the fall semester of 2019. The following year, Lee joined the International Scholars Program. She is working with her ISP mentor, Professor Rahul Oka, on a bibliography and literature review for NSF DISES Grant due in November 2020 and an NIH grant planned for Spring/Summer 2021. Her duties will include building and maintaining an active database for climate, migration, and conflict research. Lee will work closely with Professor Oka along with faculty from the College of Engineering. In addition to this, Lee also studies different avenues of stressors for Asian American university students and how these stressors are embodied and translated to their wellbeing.
In addition to ISP, Lee worked with Hopeprint, a non-profit organization based in Syracuse, to work with the local refugee population. There, Lee was in charge of various cultural events, translating documents, and virtualizing annual summer events for the organization.
