Anya took AT Research and Catalyst throughout the 2017 to 2018 school year. For her project, she studied the postpartum health of working mothers in Singapore. Anya hoped to discover whether there was a relationship between a mother's postpartum depressive symptoms and her participation in confinement, a Chinese postpartum ritual that restricts mothers to the confines of their homes in an effort to regulate the imbalance of energy caused by pregnancy. Anya really loved AT Research & Catalyst because it gave her the opportunity to learn more about herself and to discover a topic that she is truly passionate about -- an experience that she seldom receives within a traditional classroom setting. Aside from this course, Anya is also passionate about service, MUN, dance, and female participation in the STEM field.
