Public health, along with a strong love for environmental sustainability and conservation has shaped who I am today. This has lead to the development of a variety of skills and various experiences such as this program, and many others. As a minority from Atlanta, finding others who looked like me and shared the same interests was rare, but luckily I have been able to spread my knowledge instead of relying on others. I have a variety of interests such as music, social media, traveling, volunteering in the community, and participating in sports/outdoor activities.These things allow me to diversify myself and also those around me. I ultimately want to use a degree in Environmental Health to spread awareness, improve the state of the environmental and those who lack proper resources, and to just have fun doing it.
