Voices of Emory: Ami Fields-Meyer

Leave a Comment

Liberal Arts applies to Real Life Issues

Watch Ami’s story of beginning Emory College “undecided” in his major and how, through the liberal arts environment, he became a History major with a minor in African American studies. Ami applied for the Emory University Scholars Program as a current Emory student and was awarded the Dean’s Achievement Scholarship.

During his time at Emory, Ami co-founded the ground-breaking student group TableTalk, bringing students from different backgrounds together for engaging, authentic conversations around tough topics like race, religion, and cultural norms. In his senior year, Ami and his team are working to expand TableTalk to universities and institutions across the nation.

The Los Angeles native encourages his Emory classmates to “take professors rather than classes.” There are a plethora of interesting topics at any school, he shares. But at Emory, you have access to amazing cultural and intellectual thought leaders in your very first year!
