Hi! I’m Myeashea, a biological anthropology grad student in NYC, and science and art enthusiast. I LOVE anthropology- especially forensic anthropology and the narratives that live within our skeletons.
Anthropology is the discipline that studies what it is to be human! In order to do that, we need to be super interdisciplinary! It really takes a village to understand the ways in which we create, develop, and respond to our world. For me, anthropology should not only be about learning about ourselves and our world but also a chance to participate in active solutions and policies to help make the world better. Yes, I am an activist as well!
I have an AA in Anthropology, a BA in Culture and Media, and a Masters in Bio Anthropology with a focus in forensic anthro. I’ve been primarily focused on skeletal pathology and how the body responds to environmental pressures. I’m currently on a break from academia along the path towards a PhD in Bio Anthropology.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with a few amazing institutions including the Smithsonian, The Franklin Institute, and the Clinton Global Initiative University.
I’m also a lover of Legos, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Dr. Suess, and a myriad of other amazingly cool things, and I am inspired by the struggles and navigation of the every day and the “ordinary”. Additionally, I’m a trained filmmaker and a creative professional.
Let’s get to know each other, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting ‘The Rockstar Anthropologist!’
Keep in touch!
