Background Guide

Chair: Lisa Guraya

Lisa Guraya is a junior, and is double majoring in Public Policy and Global Health. When she is not chairing a committee at DISCON, she is usually roasting sweet potatoes, watching Scandal, or stressing about the fact she doesn't have a start up like the rest of her Duke peers. Lisa is excited to chair UN Women, as she identified as a feminist before it was cool. You can contact Lisa at lisa.guraya@duke.edu!
