Karen Adjei

Karen Adjei is a sophomore in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences studying History with a minor in Global Health Studies. She currently pursues fields such as sociology, political science, and anthropology, and plans to continue pursuing these fields in graduate school. Karen enjoys studying social sciences because it exposes her to many nuanced insights about the world, and she wants to take an interdisciplinary approach in her exploration of the world’s diverse societies. Her work is greatly influenced by her summer trip to South Africa in 2015, where she immersed herself in the community of Doringbay and was inspired to create a social club for youth to discuss problems affecting them and their community. At present, Karen enjoys mentoring young people by helping high school seniors with college applications and acting as a facilitator for a community engagement program at Evanston Township High School.
