Fiorella Orozco is an undergraduate student at Duke University planning on majoring in Biology, Global Health, and minoring in Creative Writing. She is interested in anything that encompasses improving the lives of others, whether it be in her local community or across the sea in Borneo!
How can we support women’s health in low-income settings? How can we equitably distribute resources to fight mosquito-borne diseases? These questions have led her to many experiences. In the past two years, Fiorella has advocated for menstrual equity through the Homeless Period Project, worked with the Nicaraguan Red Cross to prevent outbreaks of the Chikungunya virus, and aided the Asociación Hispano-Americana de Mujeres in communications between the committee and many high-level government officials in Mexico.
At Duke, she’s excited to tackle new issues and work alongside passionate and driven students! In her free time, Fiorella goes on runs, journals, and watches Duke basketball!
