Internship title/site and brief summary: 

I interned at the Benton County Health Department, and as a Communicable Disease Epidemiologist Intern my job was to conduct data management and data analysis to determine the trends and patterns of STIs within Benton county.

Professional / academic / life plans after graduation: 

I want to become an epidemiologist and conduct research and data analysis to understand the trends and patterns of health outcomes/diseases prevalent in society. I am also interested in working on child/adolescent mental health through evidence-based interventions.

Favorite memory of being a graduate student at Oregon State: 

My favorite memory at OSU is the early morning walks to Valley Library and the 5th-floor rotunda, where I used to sit and finish up my assignments. That is one place that I love the most, and I will miss it.
