Public health, BS
Intern site name
Jackson County Health and Human Services

What inspired or interested you about your field of study?

I chose the public health major because health has always been a priority of mine and I want to expand my knowledge on this subject. I also have a passion for helping others, so this major allows me to do both.

What did you work on during your internship?

My main project was developing two problem gambling prevention campaigns. One of my campaigns was for Jackson County's Latinx community and the other for Jackson County's older adult population.

What do you see as the greatest value of your internship?

I think the greatest value of my internship was getting my foot in the door. Public health is a difficult field to get into, so I think getting your foot in the door early provides you with a significant advantage.

What are your post-college dreams?

After I graduate, I plan to pursue a master’s in education. A goal of mine has always been to become a teacher, so getting a master's degree will allow me to combine my love for health and education.
