The MRC is a wonderful organization with a true community of volunteers. Recently, we have started the MRC University Team or "MRC UNI-te” focused on recruiting undergraduate and graduate students in Williamson County and empowering them to create new MRC projects that they care about as well as volunteer in other MRC projects. As MRC UNI-te grows, we look forward to becoming a lasting resource of young volunteers that are passionate about serving their community and participate in projects that the entire Will-Co community will benefit from. Currently, we are developing projects focusing on educating returning college students about the importance of maintaining safe social distancing and hygiene practices to reduce the risk for themselves and the community surrounding those schools.

Hi I am Megan Melo and I am a rising senior Biology major at Southwestern University and I am currently applying to medical schools in Texas in order to become a family medicine practitioner. Originally I am from a small rural town in Northern California called Mount Shasta but I fell in love with how community oriented Georgetown is. My experience in the MRC has only proven to me even more, that Georgetown citizens and Texans in general, look out for each other and I am excited to become a Texas resident as soon as possible!
My name is Nila Dhinaker and I am a current sophomore at Southwestern University. I am pursuing a BM in Instrumental Performance (French Horn), a BS in Psychology with a minor in Spanish, and I am on the pre-medical pathway. I'm passionate about social justice and healthcare, especially concerning the merging of those two disciplines, and love to get involved with the community and help any way I can! In my free time, I like to rock-climb, skateboard, hang out with my animals (two elderly beagles and a 3-y/o siamese cat), and make music. 
 
My name is Shelby Brooks, and I am a Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner student at Vanderbilt University pursuing my Masters of Science in Nursing. I am from Georgetown, Texas and attended the University of Texas at Austin for undergrad (hook ‘em!). My greatest passion is to instill a strong sense of resilience in the youth of my community, which I pursue both in my future career and in my current MRC leadership position in the Youth Engagement Services (YES) Unit.
Hi my name is Gianna Kelly. I will be attending The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in the fall and will be chasing the life long dream of becoming a nurse . Nursing has always been my goal from the time I could talk and not once have I given up on that dream. Being able to volunteer during Covid-19 has been such a powerful time for me as I have been able to work along side other nurses and people that would take me years or in some cases, would have never met .  I appreciate all that I have learned from them and I’m excited to become a nurse in the future. So keep your eyes out for me in those hospitals!
My name is Lucas Zeida Haar and I am from Frisco, Texas. I’m going into my junior year at the University of Texas on the pre-med track as a Biochemistry and Sociology double major. I currently work with the surge investigators with MRC and they’re an amazing group to work with! I truly enjoy being a part of MRC as it has shown me just how crucial public health is to medicine and that the contributions we make every day as a team help keep our community safe!
Hi! I’m Amulya and I graduated from UT Austin in 2017. After working in Europe for 2 years, I decided to go to medical school and am in my second year at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. I joined MRC to learn more about community health, and connect with healthcare professionals and volunteers in my hometown. I’ve really enjoyed getting to meet people of different backgrounds through WilcoMRC and look forward to the many memories ahead!
Hi I am Nadia Dapp and I have an A.A.S in Veterinary Technology and worked as Licensed Veterinary Technician for almost 15 years, mostly ER and critical care. Last June I quit to go back to school full time. I hope to get my bachelors in Microbiology and then either go into research or now I'm considering Public Health. I'm interested in MRC cause I want to do as much as possible to help my community.
I’m Kelly Loutfi, I’m 20 years old, a rising junior at the University of Texas at Austin. I am studying Biochemistry and double minoring in Spanish and Business. I am on the pre-medical track and aspire to be a surgeon one day. However, with time and experience, I’ve realized that I would be happy working for any form of medicine & health the rest of my life! I really enjoy being a part of MRC and have learned countless skills and gained a better understanding of the importance of health care workers, and the necessity of communal effort to make lasting change. 
My name is Taeyeon Kim and I am a rising sophomore at Vassar College in New York and is pursuing biochemistry as my major. I have been looking for opportunities to help our community with the ongoing health crisis and am happy to be able to join the MRC team! 
Hello my name is Samuel, however I typically go by Sam. I am currently a graduating senior at UT Austin, taking my final summer courses. I will be getting my B.A in Health and Society with a minor in Applied Statistical Modeling. My studies were focused around public health, statistics/data science, and biology. After a gap year (or anywhere from 1 to 3 years), I plan on pursuing a MPH in Epidemiology or a MS in Biostatistics. My hobbies include listening to music, working out, and reading. 
My name is Majd Hawwar, and I am a rising senior at the University of Texas at Dallas.
