Working Towards a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology

A scholar studying toward her bachelor's degree in sociology at Emory University, Maral Cavner will graduate in May 2013 with the highest degree of honors. While an undergraduate, she has engaged extensively with the wider student body as leader and member of such student organizations as the Emory Dream Project, the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, and the Machik Chapter at Emory University, a fundraising organization to promote education in Tibet. In serving the latter group, Maral Cavner applies knowledge gained while an intern with the International Campaign for Tibet in the United States capital and in Dharamshala.

In addition to her school-related activities, Maral Cavner supports PAWSitive Outreach, a no-kill animal shelter. As volunteer with the organization, she applies her lifelong love of animals by caring for and socializing neglected dogs and cats. Further, she acts as founding executive board member for the Route 66 No-Kill Animal Shelter, a soon-to-be established facility in Southwest Missouri. Cavner also works as executive board member for Teen Challenge, a group that supports new leaders by providing job placement assistance.
