MPH - Health Services Administration
"I've been able to grow here in ways I wasn't able to before. Being surrounded by people with the same interests and passions but who are from different backgrounds and walks of life is a rewarding experience I couldn't imagine getting anywhere else."
Minneapolis, MinnesotaPrior Degree(s):
Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Howard University in Washington, DC.Before entering the program:
Before entering the MPH program, I was completing my undergraduate program at Howard University.Why did you choose public health?
I ultimately chose public health because I wanted to be of help to underserved populations and communities that didn't receive the type of opportunities that I did while growing up. I want be a part of a change in the world we haven't seen yet!Why did you choose MEZCOPH?
chose to attend MEZCOPH because of passion that radiates from this college. On top of the opportunities that are available here and the amazing curriculum , everyone is more than willing to help out the communities surrounding us. Many schools aren't able to offer me academic opportunity and experience within the community, so when I found a school that could, I had to jump on the chance to attend!Public health interests:
Behavioral Health, Health Disparities, Health Promotion, Integrative MedicineInternship:
I am interning at Empowerment Systems, Inc. which is giving me the opportunity to learn how to develop, deliver and evaluate health education in the community utilizing a multi-dimensional approach, along with learning how to oversee community-based programs.Interests/hobbies outside of school:
Outside of school, I love to dance and to travel whenever I can. I enjoy experiencing new and different things...and eating a good meal while I'm at it!Tip for future students:
My biggest tip for future students is to work hard and play hard. Many of us are guilty of overworking ourselves and not spending enough time on self-care. In my experience, taking some time to recharge always leads to some of my best work!
