What skill are you most excited about developing through this internship?
Well, if I had to pick one skill that's got me buzzing with excitement, it would be my superpower of transforming raw data into a symphony of insights! I'm talking about data analysis. I can't wait to dive into those complex datasets like a detective solving a mystery, uncovering hidden patterns, and unleashing the power of numbers to guide evidence-based decisions in the world of public health.
Which movie best illustrates your career ambitions?
Contagion. While the movie showcases a fictional pandemic, it highlights the critical role of epidemiologists and public health professionals in understanding and containing infectious diseases. The film emphasizes the importance of collaboration, data analysis, and rapid response in controlling outbreaks. It's a reminder of the real-world challenges we face in public health and the dedication required to protect communities.
Who has helped you get to this point?
Being the first student from NYU's School of Global Public Health to get into the highly competitor Epi Scholar and HRTP internship was a big thing for me, my family, and everyone at school. I couldn’t have done it without my parents, and the staff at NYU GPH, and my internship Preceptor Ryan MacDonald. This internship is not just a stepping stone. I am ready to face challenges head-on, absorb knowledge like a sponge, and seize every opportunity to contribute to the well-being of communities. It's the first chapter in my journey to become a true champion of public health, and I can't wait to inspire others to join me on this incredible path.
