Dr. Shakira Grant was born in Barbados and says she knew around the age of 11 or 12, when her grandfather was diagnosed with lung cancer, that she would become an oncologist. She also says UNC felt like home when she visited, and it was the “ease of conversation, welcoming smiles, and the collegial atmosphere” that helped her know UNC was the place to be.
