Antonia Caba

Norfolk, Massachusetts | Public Health Major, Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Minor

Antonia has embodied the spirit of both her public health major and women’s, gender, and sexuality minor in her time at Miami. Her nominator wrote that Antonia’s strong desire to make the word a better place is exemplified in her research history and her planned path.

She founded the Miami chapter of I Am That Girl, a young women’s empowerment organization, served survivors of sexual assault through Women Helping Women and worked with new and expecting mothers at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital. She also completed an internship at the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health and conducted research into the relationship between body dissatisfaction and alcohol consumption in sorority members.

Additionally, Antonia served her peers by creating a mentoring program during her time with the Honors Student Advisory Board, serving as an Acropolis Greek Leadership Retreat Peer Mentor, and working as a tutor through the Rinella Learning Center. Through it all, she’s managed to hold a part time job at Oxford Donut Shop.
