Portrait of Myya Helm


The WVU Experience

Myya Helm

Myya is a 2021 Marshall Scholar, giving her the opportunity to study in the United Kingdom for two fully-funded years toward a graduate degree. In a two-year research Master of Philosophy program at Cardiff University, she will study history with a focus on the Welsh history of Black working class coal miners.

"I just feel so strong and empowered having been offered this opportunity to not only just be able to go and study overseas in the United Kingdom, but to be able to study something that’s so important to my identity and my community."
