Having a tight-knit community of people all wanting to better the world in different ways is such a great and unique way to learn, make friendships, and exchange in meaningful dialogue.
Why did you choose the GRS specialization that you did?
I chose my GRS Specializations because Africa is not only the world’s most diverse and oftentimes overlooked continent but it is also the world’s fastest growing economy. The opportunities to provide meaningful input into major decisions and actually be able to help grow the communities there were immense and I felt I had to do my part to better the planet. Global Health is, without a doubt, one of the most important sectors of healthcare all over the world and, ever since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, I gained a passion for it and I felt that it was my duty to both learn about its intricacies and provide valuable advice to those working on getting through this pandemic alongside other heath crises.
What do you like best about the GRS program?
I absolutely love the community and variety of people and courses that we get with the GRS program. Having a tight-knit community of people all wanting to better the world in different ways is such a great and unique way to learn, make friendships, and exchange in meaningful dialogue. Also, having a wide variety of courses available really allows everyone to find something they are passionate about.
