Prudence YokoniaGraduate Studentshe/her/hers

I am an international student from Harare, Zimbabwe. My interests lie in the broad area of child development with a focus on analyzing the impacts of poverty, family values, and culture on the opportunities available for vulnerable adolescent girls in developing nations. My goal is to engage in research that will provide more data on what needs to be done to support the well-being of vulnerable children even after the effects of poverty and culture. As a woman of color from a developing nation, I am confident my perspective will add to the intellectual diversification of both the program and the community.
