Imagine That: ILLD Highlights week of Feb 7th, the "Web Face" of the Office of Integrative Learning and Life Design at JHU, is proud to be a voice for students who are thinking and designing forward, focusing on their strengths and influencing their career and life journey through their experiences and passions! Each student has their own story and we at Imagine believe it is a story that should be told and celebrated through their own voices and projects.

This week in "Imagine That" we want to highlight 3 students who received the PURA Award this past year (Provost Undergraduate Research Award) and they discussed how they came to develop, identify and embarked on their research as well as offering guidance for students who want to explore their own research interests and paths!

The Provost's Undergraduate Research Award (PURA), administered by the Hopkins Office for Undergraduate Research (HOUR), was established to support and encourage Hopkins undergraduates to engage in independent research, scholarly, or creative projects.

Our three students are: Shafkat Meraj's Scoping Review: Investigating the Political & Bureaucratic Factors Shaping Children's Care in LMICs Joyce Ker's "Dear Cancer" project combines the humanities and science research Kylie Fuller investigates the links between social media and tackling climate change
