Corin Humphrey Better World Competition

$500 Award

Psychology Students:

Corin Humphrey was a Hunter College student who was on a mission. She was a fulltime student, worked as an EMT, was a member of Hunter College's Fencing team, and was performing research in a lab at Mount Sinai Hospital, all the while obtaining a 4.0 GPA. She was on a mission to gather the knowledge needed to make a difference in the transgender community. Her goal was to improve the lives of transgender people by researching the use of hormone replacement therapy. She felt trangender people were underrepresented in science, and wanted to make her contribution in this area.
