Last week three impressive Harlem students, who were recently awarded O’Melveny Scholarships at the 15th Annual New York Scholarship Awards ceremony, which took place on May 22, 2017. Tri-lingual Mastan Diop immigrated to Harlem from Mali and dreams of returning to open a free pediatric clinic; trailblazer Jade Roman spearheaded a petition to include more Latino history in her school’s curriculum; and Serah McKenzie is resolute in her goal to become an OB GYN so she can help women navigate the life-altering transition to motherhood.
