Mary Shahinyan

Premedical Division Advocacy Chair

Mary Shahinyan is a pre-medical student at the University of California-Berkeley (class of 2023) studying Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis on Neurobiology, and minoring in Theatre. AMWA holds significant meaning for her as it was the first community that she genuinely felt supported and empowered by during her first semester. She is extremely passionate about working with children, learning about the human mind, and advocating for the underserved. She worked with Covenant House California in order to create more accessibility of their services for homeless youth and increase the quality of care provided for the mentally ill homeless population. She is eager to embark on new journeys and opportunities over her next years at Berkeley. Being in AMWA has been a blessing and honor, and she is looking forward to continually giving back to the beautiful community of people.
