Leora Sharma, class of 2017, is an Anthropology and Psychology double major. She hopes to pursue a career in international humanitarian policy but has also worked in corporate communications and in publicity during her time at Mount Holyoke. While at Mount Holyoke, she has participated in student theatre and dance productions, but she spends most of her time outside of class on research. She has participated in various psychology labs and spent the summer of 2016 abroad in Iceland, conducting independent anthropological research on Icelandic integration practices for asylum seekers. Her favorite part of being a part of the Mount Holyoke community is feeling supported by peers who are passionate about their own work and by faculty, who have encouraged her to lean outside of her academic, personal, and professional comfort zones.
