My name is Corina Vinarov and I am a sophomore at Walter Payton College Prep in Chicago. The idea for Forgotten Needs came to me after taking a human rights class at school. Our year-long assignment was to find a topic we were interested in that violated any human rights. I chose to research how migration impacts women's healthcare because it combined two topics that I am passionate about, feminism and healthcare. We were unable to put Forgotten Needs into action due to the severity of COVID-19 in Chicago at the time. We came to Texas to check up on my grandparents, both refugees themselves, and realized that there was an abundance of organizations that could partner with us to make Forgotten Needs a reality.
