Athraa Hannawa: Researching cancer from a different perspective
After her 11-year-old brother was diagnosed with Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer, Athraa Hannawa, decided to use her passion for sociology to understand why certain populations are more likely to get cancer. "We will always need sociology. There will always be different ways people think. Without sociology, I wouldn’t have thought of this theory about veterans. These different ideas force you to think, not memorize. That’s why I love sociology; it pushes me to think differently."
