Introducing Georgia Lou!

Hey there! My name is Georgia Lou and I am a first year at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. As of right now, I am an intended Biology and Anthropology major on the pre-health track, but I am definitely open and excited to explore new fields in college. Ultimately, I would love to work in the field of women’s health and adolescent medicine to help empower women and teens to take control of their health and lives. I was able to start studying women’s health through a summer class at Smith College where we explored a variety of global issues ranging from menstrual disorders and sexual health to female circumcision and domestic violence. I was introduced to the wonderful Center for Young Women’s Health this past summer when I was able to observe and participate in the mock adolescent interviews that the center runs for doctors in their residency at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Outside of school, I spend lots of time dancing as I have been studying a variety of styles (ballet, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, tap, hip hop, and acrobatics) since I was three and will continue to dance with a student group here at Smith. I also enjoy debating, exploring outdoors, and trying new foods! My friends and family are a huge part of my life, even now that we’re all in different places. I am so excited to share some of my experiences and passions with you on the TeenSpeak blog!
