November 2019: Avery Sirwatka

Avery chose to become a sociology major because “the discipline is a way to directly interrogate disparities (social, economic, and health, etc.) within society.” In addition to majoring in Sociology, Avery is also majoring in Urban & Public Policy and minoring in Public Health and Environmental Design. Avery is also conducting research on food access and equity in the Food Systems Planning and Healthy Communities Lab at UB. 

After graduation, Avery plans to apply for the Emerson National Hunger Fellowship and then pursue a joint JD/Masters of Urban Planning Degree at UB before eventually pursuing a PhD.
