Aysha Asueva is an undergraduate research assistant at the Early Intervention Research Group. She is a sophomore majoring in neuroscience and minoring in Korean language and culture. She is pursuing the pre-medicine track to prepare for her goal of becoming a pediatrician. Her love of children and her desire to work with them has led her to joining EIRG, working with preschoolers in under-resourced areas through Jumpstart, and volunteering at a summer camp for children affected by cancer. Aysha volunteers at a residential community for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia and is the treasurer of her all-women’s dorm at Northwestern University. During her free time she enjoys reading books, listening to music, and making things with her hands. Her interest in neuroscience, combined with her desire to work with children, has motivated her to learn more about neurodevelopmental disorders – specifically autism.
