Lucia Mulei

Lucia Mulei is a rising senior at Boston Latin School. She was born in Marina Del Rey, California, and lived in Manhattan, New York before moving with her parents to Boston at the age of four. Living in major cities across the United States has given her an interest in the unique perspectives of people throughout the country.

Beginning in eighth grade, Lucia began to immerse herself in the medical field through various volunteering experiences at organizations such as Hebrew SeniorLife in Roslindale, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and the Red Cross. After the COVID-19 pandemic began in March of 2020 and hospitals closed their doors to volunteers, Lucia began exploring other opportunities in the nonprofit and public service fields, which allowed her to learn more about non-clinical careers in healthcare. She was a Deitch Fellow in the summer of 2020 placed at Commonwealth Financial Network, where she created resources on nonprofits and charitable trusts. 

Gaining experience in the private sector inspired Lucia to explore public health as another possible career option. In the Fall of 2020, she began working with the Michelle Wu for Mayor campaign as a Jamaica Plain community leader. She applied for the Ward Fellowship with the goal of learning more about public service and the various careers available in the public sector.

Lucia has a certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) from the University of Toronto Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. From this fellowship, she hopes to learn more about the many careers available in the public sector as well as the role of the MSBA.
