Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments: Khalilah Ramdene is what you would call a STEP lifer. She joined Albany Medical College (AMC) STEP during her sophomore year at Albany High School. She was a member of AMC STEP for the next eight years. After graduating from high school Khalilah attended the University at Albany on a full academic scholarship, and assumed the role of assistant coordinator of AMC STEP before eventually moving to the position of Program Coordinator. While in her last year as AMC STEP coordinator, Khalilah introduced a number of food and nutrition centered topics into the curriculum as a way to explore the widely discussed issue of youth and obesity in the U.S. Khalilah’s interest in science and food has motivated her to study Gastronomy- an academic discipline that explores the relationships between humanity, culture and food at Boston University where she is pursing a Master degree in the department of History & Culture. Khalilah also works as a food writer and photographer in Boston, MA. Because of Khalilah’s science foundation, and AMC STEP’s ability to cultivate these interests early in her academic life, her future continues to be a bright one.
