Fulbright Scotland Summer Institute on Technology, Innovation and Creativity: University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art

Keona Bukhari-Adams is a rising sophomore at Syracuse University who was born and raised in Springfield, New Jersey. Prior to starting college, she was a dancer who trained at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. While her love for dance is infinite, she has always aspired to pursue a career in the medical field.

Currently, she is on a pre-medical track with a double major in Neuroscience and Psychology and a minor in Cultural Anthropology. Her ultimate goal is to pursue a career as a neurosurgeon or pediatric oncologist. At her university, she is currently a member of Phi Delta Epsilon (an international medical fraternity) and serves as a peer mentor for the Syracuse International Student Success Program.

Keona is thrilled to travel outside of the United States for the first time and participate in the Technology, Innovation, and Creativity program at the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art. She is eager to explore the intersection between medicine and technology and learn from individuals who are constantly pushing the boundaries for greatness. In addition, she is excited to explore the beauty and culture of Scotland and meet other highly passionate students from across the nation.
