Zaima Robinson

In spring of 2015, the Challenger News ran a feature story on Zaimah N. Robinson, who participated in Pre-meds without Borders. The mission took her and 29 other pre-med students from the University at Buffalo to La Merced Peru, where they shadowed doctors and learned hands-on techniques in treatment of the sick. They also participated in educational outreach work, promoting good health practices to local villagers.

Now, a year later, Zaimah has graduated from the University at Buffalo, magna cum laude (“with great honor”). She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Pharmacology and Toxicology. To her credit, Zaimah dedicated herself tirelessly toward the fulfillment of her academic goals, without being overwhelmed. Despite working part-time and being a full-time student, she spent hours, often into the late night, at the university’s library. Yet, still found time to tutor other students in the areas of: anatomy, statistics, world civilizations, and was a Teaching Assistant for the EOP Summer Program. 

Professionally she is a member of both Pre-meds Without Borders and Alpha Epsilon Delta—a National Health Pre-professional Honor Society. Zaimah has outlined plans for graduate school, which include intentions to enroll in a one year Master’s program in Biology (pre-med) and then on to medical school.

Congratulations to Zaimah on a job well done!
