The Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy is excited to welcome Alyzah Virani as our new Texas is Ready Intern!
Alyzah Virani is a senior at Texas Woman’s University and is pursuing her Bachelor’s in Public Health with a minor in Business Administration. Through her experiences as a senior Pharmacy Technician, developing health workshops as a peer mentor on campus, and volunteering with her service sorority, her desire to be a part of the solution, and not the problem was ignited. Her passions include eliminating healthcare barriers among minority communities and encouraging progressive changes to reflect equitable healthcare. More specifically, some of her goals include reforming health insurance policies, advocating for lower insulin costs, and furthering the education of reproductive health among historically marginalized communities. Having previously interned at two non-profit organizations and contributing her unique set of skills and personal experiences as a Pakistani-American woman, she hopes to accomplish her missions by being a life-long learner and leader. When she is not striking through items on her endless amount of Post-It notes, she enjoys reading at new coffee shops on the weekends, watching sunsets at the lake, and diversifying her music palette.
