Khalilah Mitchell, studying Liberal Arts and Sciences, is a DiversityJobs Scholarship Finalist

Conducting the research and development for an artificial renal system and kidney is something that I seek to do at some point during my lifetime. Both my parents suffer from renal failure, kidney failure. They are on dialysis…it’s expensive and they will inevitably die. People that are on dialysis won’t live very long – it doesn’t fix the problem forever. But creating an environmentally safe artificial renal system is something that would benefit many people in so many countries.

Being able to donate that legacy to other women and other people from minority families…that’s what I stand for.
