    Why choose the UA / What’s awesome about the UA:

    I chose UA mostly for its location and academics. From various individuals I learned that the classes were taught very well, and after visiting the campus, I fell in love with the atmosphere of the school. The bonus was that UA was far enough from Phoenix, but not too far!

    Why did you choose public health?

    Public health is a major that allows a student to explore various aspects of health. Many people tend to focus on individual physical health, but there is so much more than that. Public health exposed me to all the various forms of health, and as a result, I feel that I am well prepared for any job that I decide to take upon graduating. 

    What are your career goals:

    My biggest career goal is to become a family doctor, but I want to get my MPH in public health before that. I feel that I still have so much to learn from this subject!

    Fun Fact about you (hobbies, trivia, etc.):

    I love to learn about different cultures and languages. I am currently trying to learn Portuguese and Korean!

    One piece of advice for incoming students (transfer and freshmen):

    Make a rough plan of what classes you have to take each semester. This will relieve some of the stress when trying to sign up for classes.
