Meet our Board
I am a first-year graduate student in the M.A. (Sustainable International Development) / M.S. (Global Health Policy and Management) dual degree program at Heller. Prior to coming to Brandeis, I served as an AmeriCorps member in Birmingham, AL before accepting my current position with Intuit as a Sr. Tax Expert. My partner and I enjoy running, trivia, and desperately trying to keep our houseplants alive.

I am Qingyang Dong, a junior double majoring in Sociology and History and minoring in East Asian Studies. I am especially interested in the Sociology of Education and thus enjoy communications with people from different language/culture backgrounds. As an international student, I always advocate social justice on campus and would like to help promote it as a board member.
My name is Mariah Lewis and I am a sophomore at Brandeis University. I have lived in Williamstown Massachusetts for almost my entire life, but I am adopted from Romania. I am currently a declared Psychology major, and am planning on declaring a Sociology major as well as a Legal Studies minor. Outside of school I professionally play music with my mother, who is a singer songwriter and also a music professor at Williams College. We play on the folk circuit, and that's the main job I had throughout high school. I am planning to work with adoption agencies in the future either through a legal perspective or a psychological perspective, and hope to continue playing and teaching music on the side.
