“I truly believe I can make a difference in my community and place of employment through a career in public health. Furthermore, I have two little girls that look up to me and I want to show them to never stop learning; and that by bettering ourselves, we can positively influence the overall quality of living for our family and community. ”

“I am pursuing a career in public health because I want to be a part of a profession that is dedicated to the continual fight of improving the health and lives of all people. People are the most valuable part of this world, and therefore their health and quality of life are worth fighting for.”
