International Scholars “Student Spotlight”

Emilia Olson ‘22
Majors: International Studies and Public Health
Concentration: Latin America & the Caribbean

“I’m from Charleston, SC. I chose CofC because of the liberal art education and ample study abroad opportunities. I also was attracted to the International Scholars Program and the Charleston Fellows Program through the Honors College. I chose International Scholars because I am interested in global health and I wanted to have a diverse education about global issues and solutions. I have enjoyed the cohort experience, study abroad in Estonia, and mentorship opportunities. I have been able to study abroad in five countries across five continents, in part, because of the International Scholars Program. I’ve also been able to engage deeply with faculty and peers in the department.  After college I plan on completing a masters in Global Health at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden and then attend medical school. Ultimately, I would like to work as a physician in Humanitarian Aid.”
