Nancy Dordal '18

Emmaus, PA

Hello! My name is Nancy and I am a senior Anthropology major with minors in Spanish and Chemistry. I was initially on the Pre-Med track, but I changed paths my junior year to pursue immigration law. Because of opportunities afforded to me by Temple and the Honors Program, I have interned at Annunciation House, a migrant shelter in El Paso, TX, and HIAS PA, an immigrant legal aid and refugee resettlement non-profit in Philadelphia. The Honors Program has really encouraged me to pursue all of my various interests. I have enjoyed being an Honors Ambassador as well as a Classroom Assistant for Introductory Biology. I have spent my summers performing genomics research at a biology lab on campus as well as studying abroad at Temple Rome where we held class in front of the Colosseum. In my free time, I like to explore Philadelphia, particularly through food. If you have any questions about Honors, Anthropology, or switching career paths, I’m here to help!
