Genesis is a senior at the University of North Florida studying biomedical sciences and public health. She hopes to attend PA school after graduation and later work in the field of hematology. She was diagnosed at age 14 with VWD and recently with an unspecified platelet disorder. Since her diagnosis, she became involved with her local chapter, the Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida, where she found her love for serving the bleeding disorders community. Genesis enjoys exploring new places and learning new things! She feels blessed to be a part of the bleeding disorders community and the NYLI because of the people who have welcomed her with loving arms and been supportive and helpful through her journey. Through NYLI, she hopes to learn how to be a better educator and advocate for people with bleeding disorders.
