Bernice Fokum, HKS

Bernice Fokum is a dual degree MPP student at the Harvard Kennedy School and MD Candidate at Emory University School of Medicine. She is eager to learn how to be an agent of change on both the individual and systemic levels for her patients, especially as she plans to work as an emergency medicine physician in urban settings with the highest need. She previously graduated from Princeton University, where she studied anthropology and global health & health policy. She wants her time at the Kennedy School to allow her to imagine futures that she has not yet encountered in her present and to equip herself with the tools to make manifest these visions. Bringing people together is one of her favorite hobbies, so she looks forward to game nights, dinner parties, and nights full of dancing and laughter.
