Local Refugee Becomes Standout at Emory

Sy, a refugee from West Africa, was 11 years old when she and her family were resettled in Atlanta. Now, Sy is one of Emory University’s 2015-2016 Robert T. Jones Jr. Scholarship recipients, a prestigious award. Sy will embark upon studies at St. Andrews University in Scotland this fall, where she plans to pursue a one-year Master of Letters in Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asian security.
