Future Career Goals: My ultimate career goal is to start a nonprofit organization whose primary aim is to enhance access to and awareness of wellness options available to Latinx and African populations worldwide. Areas I want to concentrate on are preventive healthcare and education, which includes having access to better food options and health education. Lastly, an essential component of my organization would be to change or create new health policies that would allow underdeveloped communities access to housing, education, and employment.
Top 3 Goals for your time abroad: 1. My first goal is to be more open-minded; this includes trying local food, being proficient in Arabic and engaging with the community.
2. My second goal is to go to the Bayn al-Qasrayn, this is one of many monumental buildings I want to go to. But I am really excited to see and learn about the history of Egyptian architecture.
3. Lastly, my third goal is to find research opportunities within the Global Public Health programs offered at AUC
