A graduate of Washtenaw Technical Middle College, Nicole Brown entered EMU with 47 credit hours toward her degree in social work.
Born in Queens, New York, Brown moved to Ypsilanti six years ago. Her long-term career goal was set after she had the life-changing experience of watching the birth of her cousin. She will complete her bachelor's degree in social work prior to attending medical school to become an obstetrician.
She is working with faculty mentor, Professor Bonnie Miller, on a project to plan and coordinate an alternate spring break at a volunteer facility in Violet, Louisiana assisting with post-Katrina reconstruction. This project reflects Brown’s commitment to impact her community. She is also actively engaged in the community service organizations, Washtenaw Area Teens for Tomorrow (WATT), Ypsilanti Youth Empowered to Act (YYEA), the Ozone House Drop-In Center, and Teen Center Without Walls (TCW2).
