Deep Tripurana (any pronoun with respect) is a Queer Trans-Hijra South Asian American born in Southern India and mostly raised in northern, Illinois. They attended Lawrence University for a B.A. in Biomedical Ethics, looking at holistic analysis of decisions within healthcare fields through the lens of all stakeholders, historical context, and culturally transformative policies. Currently, they work as an academic tutor and workshop facilitator, entering clinical research to look at intersections of public health disparities with historically marginalized communities. They also provide support organizations like Black and Asian Solidarity Series, COUNT US IN, Subtle Asian Activists, and Midwest Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Students Union.
