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

    UA was not my first choice, but I ultimately chose it because it was close enough to family but still far away. Originally my plan was to study out of the country, but I realized UA could offer me the same option to study abroad and additionally get a great education on top of that. I loved our public health program as well as the multiple options for clubs there was .

    Why did you choose public health?

    I chose public health because there is a such a wide variety of paths to go down, whether that be related to health advocacy, medicine, nursing, environment, etc. I feel that if you are looking to get a community perspective on healthcare and our current system, then public health is the perfect choice. Understanding health from this outlook truly gives such an edge in the professional world, as many healthcare workers focus solely on direct patient care.

    What are your career goals:

    My career goals vary, but lately I am drawn to the clinical research world and potentially would love to be a clinical research associate working on clinical trials. I would love to get an MPH at the same time as this mixes in my love for healthcare and business. However, if I were to go the patient route, I believe occupational therapy would be the path I choose.

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

    I was in the newspaper when I was born for being the first baby in that wing of the hospital!

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

    Take a moment to plan out your weekly routines and make sure to leave time for yourself in between. With social, academic, and physical activities all happening at the same time it is essential to practice time management and see what strategies work best for you!
