Tamia Santiago is a rising senior at Drexel University pursuing a degree in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. As a Philadelphia native, Tamia dreamed of going to Drexel University since the age of nine not for herself, but rather her community. Tamia always understood that her fortunate position was all a matter of circumstance and aims to uplift the unheard voices through her talent in writing. With the help of the Gilman Scholarship, Tamia planned to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland and Amman, Jordan. The program focused on peace and conflict relations in two separate regions of the world. Tamia planned to immerse herself within these two worlds to write a story where we could see them as one.
