Hello my name is Bethlehem, but most call me Betty!
I am a recent graduate of bachelor's of Medicinal Chemistry at UTS. I aim to merge my disciplinary knowledge in science with my strong affinity for human rights and inclusion, ultimately focusing on intersectionality and the facilitation of minority students into STEM pathways.
I have joined the WH&Y Commission as I believe there are many gaps in the ways that adolescents interact with healthcare systems. The current structures allow for many disparities in the treatment of young people from minority groups such as those from low socio-economic backgrounds and refugee and asylum-seeker communities. These issues must be highlighted and addressed by governing agencies to drive effective change.
