While at Brown University, Aasha served as senior editor for the Brown Human Rights Report, a student-run online publication, and co-founded the University’s chapter of She’s the First, a national nonprofit that supports girls who will be the first in their families to graduate high school.

Aasha said she will be using the Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in Public policy at the University of Cambridge and a master’s degree in reproductive and sexual health research at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine both in the United Kingdom.

She added that she hopes to use the two degrees to design and implement quality, rights-based sexual and reproductive health programming and policy.


“While the focus of these two master’s programs differ, I recognize and plan to focus on intersections between the two. I believe that effective policy is one of the primary ways to reduce adverse health outcomes caused by economic, social and racial inequality,” Aasha said
