Lema Abuoqab is a student, an educator, artist, and writer. All of these qualities evolve around her love for children and pursuit of medicine. Lema grew up in Fort Myers, Florida where she attended Canterbury School from pre-school to twelfth grade. She is currently attending Tufts University as a biology major on the premedical track. In addition to her aspirations in medicine, Lema is passionate about children's education and providing pathways to develop a love for the sciences at a young age. As the oldest of four children, she has become quite the connoisseur of bedtime stories, and is interested in how children's literature can be improved to provide an interactive, engaging, and educational experience to young readers and inspire them to explore their own interests in the world of science.
