Elaina Johnson is a 20-year-old native of Roosevelt, New York. She is currently a junior at Howard University in Washington, D.C. She is a print/online journalism major and chemistry minor taking a Pre-Med track. Johnson wanted to choose a career that would directly impact African-American children, many of which are suffering from asthma. So, she has dreams of pursuing a career as a Pediatric pulmonologist, a specialization in diseases involving the respiratory tract. She wants to use her degree in journalism to free lance and eventually begin her own publication reporting on health and wellness in the African American community. Her articles have been featured in The Hilltop, Howard University's student newspaper, and District Chronicles, a local D.C. newspaper.
