Puksta Scholar Spotlight: Aliyah Williams

Aliyah wants to help those who often can’t help themselves. In her time with Puksta, this DU student has been engaged in raising awareness and promoting mental health, especially for both those who are economically disadvantaged and those within the prison system. Fascinated by the human brain, she works to educate others on the complexity of the organ and destroy the stigma often associated with mental illness. In addition to personally advocating for those suffering, she has created a website dedicated to this effort and hopes to grow this into a full-fledged nonprofit after university. We are proud of how much you are doing Aliyah and promise to do in the future. Excellent work!
