WellsLink Intern / Student Assistant

Nathena Murray is a sophomore majoring in Biology and Neuroscience on the Pre-Med Track with the dreams to become a doctor.

One day to show young ladies that anything is possible with God, determination, self-care and patience. Morals behind spreading love and giving back to communities were instilled in her at a very young age and she believes such morals have aided her growth in the individual she is today. Nathena participated and successfully completed the First Year WellsLink Leadership program, and now holds the title of the Intern for the program. She is also the Co-Mentoring Chair of the Juvenile Urban Multicultural Program, also known as JUMP Nation, which is a mentoring program for 8th graders in the Syracuse Community. She made Dean’s List twice last year, is known a Success Scholar and was recently inducted into the Renée Crown University Honors Program.

Nathena is determined to be more active in the Syracuse Community as she understands that there is a dire need for us, as students of this prestigious university, to do so. She wants to leave her mark on this campus and the community at large and is really excited for what her future holds.
