Anya Shetler is currently pursuing her BA in Anthropology at Boston University. She is interested in medical anthropology and the ways that social science can contribute to public health programs. After visiting Honduras when she was 14 she fell in love with Spanish language, Latin dancing, and Central America, which recently led her to being a lucky participant in the NAPA-OT Field School in Antigua, Guatemala. Anya is passionate about traveling and intends to pursue her MPH with an international focus.
