Where are you from? Philadelphia, Pa.
Why did you decide to join NHC? I joined NHC to really dissect what my purpose was. I knew I had a calling to service and help others, but I didn’t know how or in what way to do such. I stumbled upon NHC as a sponsored page while uploading my motivation quotes on Instagram and I applied that same day.
What are you hoping to gain or learn during your service term? I’m hoping to gain three things:
- Get a glimpse on opportunities that exist within the Public Health/Medical field
- Instead of being selfish, becoming more selfless and empathetic towards others
- What direct impact I’m willing to accomplish/contribute within a group of like-minded individuals, but most importantly, a personal level.
What are you most looking forward to during your service term? I’m looking forward to making a direct impact within my community and also building empowering connections with my peers.
