Magali Lapu


Magali is a rising senior at the University of Georgia, majoring in International Affairs and French with a Public Policy minor. She was born in Brussels, Belgium to Congolese parents and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, which pushed her to be an advocate for cross-cultural collaboration and understanding. She has studied abroad in Montpellier, France and worked in her local committee of AIESEC, a student-run nonprofit that sends youth abroad for sustainable development projects and cultural exchange. Magali’s passion for social justice, policy advocacy, and law have led her to work with the UGA Chapter of the NAACP, the Economic Justice Coalition of Athens, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in Washington, D.C. She plans on pursuing graduate studies and policy work domestically or internationally. Magali enjoys learning about the diverse cultures represented around the globe and looks forward to more travel and language learning after graduation.
