I first heard of Syracuse Community Geography through the Public Affairs Department in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. My major, Policy Studies, focuses heavily on the importance of data organization and analysis, which is why getting involved with SCG seemed like a great opportunity for me to enhance those particular skills. Further, I believe community engagement is immensely important and I truly enjoy working with and helping organizations based in the city in which I attend college.
Community-based problem solving has always interested me, specifically community-based health promotion. I am interested in the policy function of public health and health management, and after college I hope to work in healthcare consulting or conduct government affairs advocating for optimal public health policy. As a junior, I am looking forward to rewarding experiences and projects with SCG throughout my last few semesters here at SU.
