2022 Propel Scholars Award Scholarship Winner

My name is Zoey Colston, and I am a recent graduate of Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland, California. As an incoming freshman at the University of California, San Diego, I plan to pursue a dual major in human biology and visual arts. My career goal is to become a scientific illustrator and bridge the gap in scientific and medical communication. I plan to address disparities in healthcare and increase medical knowledge so that healthcare professionals can make well-informed patient care decisions. Additionally, I want to increase representation of diverse bodies in medical images to accurately represent the vast array of ethnic and racial groups reflected in our society.
