An Eye for Success

Fatima Elkabti ’09

Majors: Biology and English
Graduate school: UC Berkeley School of Optometry

“I knew I wanted to be an optometrist and writer and double majored accordingly,” Fatima Elkabti says. She is on track to graduate from UC Berkeley in May 2015, and while she plans to make optometry her full-time occupation, her passion for writing is never far from her mind. “Writing, for me, is a chance to invite strangers into the family room, a chance to serve them coffee, and talk about things that affect us all.”

This is a sneak peak of the Scripps College “30 under 30” Millennial Generation alumnae making their mark—in their work, community, and in the world—in their way. Watch for the summer issue of Scripps Magazine in early August in your mailbox, and go online to read full articles of all alumnae profiled and view photos of them in action.
