Pamela Kapolka ’22

Pamela Kapolka
Pamela is a junior majoring in Economics and minoring in Health & Society.

In the summer of 2020, Pamela worked with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as the development intern on Bike MS—a fundraising series which raises more money than any other cycling event in the country and works to end MS forever. In the past, Pamela interned at the Pennsylvania Immigrant and Refugee Women’s Network in Harrisburg, PA, where she proposed and organized a health fair, which included free resources and professional speakers. During her time at PAIRWN, Pamela also created an online database of the region’s resources with the goal of making them accessible to all. At Wellesley, Pamela is on the board of Sexual Assault Awareness for Everyone, serving as the organization’s elected treasurer as well as a peer health educator. This spring, Coronavirus permitting, Pamela will travel to Geneva, Switzerland to study at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies. Upon graduation, Pamela plans to pursue a career in health policy, improving healthcare accessibility and affordability for underserved populations.
