Jit Hui Tan is a recent Psychology and Anthropology graduate from Emory University Class of 2017. She has a passion for community mental health and is currently working as a researcher at a mental health hospital in Singapore with goals of becoming a clinical psychologist. She believes that it is increasingly important to share the stories and perspectives of individuals as we become more embroiled in a highly technical and individualized world. She hopes that through the humanities, she can both learn and share the complex and intimate experiences of individuals all around her, thus creating a holistic understanding of our larger community.
