Golda, born in Togo, is a driven and creative recent MSc Global Health Policy graduate from the University of Edinburgh. She is passionate about addressing the social determinants of health and working with and for underserved populations to increase access and availability to health care both locally and globally. With professional experiences ranging from community-based neonatal health qualitative research project in Togo, ecologically oriented agriculture program internship in Senegal, and research-driven “Young Women Leaders” mentoring curriculum co-authored by Imo State University Students in Nigeria, she is zealous about travel and immersing herself in new cultures and experiences. Her dissertation analyzed the United States’ racialized healthcare system by critically appraising the Sickle Cell Disease and Other Heritable Blood Disorders Research, Surveillance, Prevention, and Treatment Act of 2018 and she is so excited to put that knowledge to work with Cayenne Wellness Center. An alumna of the University of Virginia, she graduated with a B.A. double major in Global Development Studies and Women, Gender, Sexuality studies, and a minor in Anthropology and looks forward to bringing together her academic expertise to uplift individuals with SCD in California and support the growth of the MACHAO Orphanage Foundation.
