Sana Waheed is service minded. She volunteers for environmental clean-ups, assists in home rebuild- ing projects, and plays bingo with senior citizens. She traveled to the Dominican Republic with a group of Towson University students for a week-long service experience at an orphanage. However, it was her experience in the Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape program that helped Sana to put her interests in perspective, to create a clear vision for herself and her community.
Sana plans to pursue a career in medicine and healthcare. When she toured Healthcare for the Homeless with the Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape program, she was awe-inspired by the collaboration between the center and area doctors and hospitals to help Baltimore’s homeless men and women. After the tour, Sana developed her vision to eliminate homelessness by providing individuals with a strong foundation of health care and health education. Sana has a new focus for the service projects she wants to get involved in during her time in college and what initiatives she wants to lead when she establishes her career.
