Melissa Hynds (MS '17) told the crowd gathered at the 2017 New York Milken Scholars recognition dinner that watching her classmates eat junk food inspired her to be a cardiologist and "activist for food justice." Building on the work she's done in high school, Melissa hopes to start a nonprofit to educate urban youth about the importance of healthy eating and make healthy food options more affordable and available. She will attend Johns Hopkins University in the fall.
