Hi all! I am a first year MPH student in Community Health Sciences at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. In March, I will be running the full LA Marathon with the FSPH marathon team!
Team FSPH’s goal is to raise money for student fellowships for summer fieldwork. These funds allow students like myself to pursue fieldwork this summer, benefitting both students’ education and professional skills, as well as the communities in which they are working. As a first year student also doing my fieldwork this summer, I feel strongly that all of my (passionate, intelligent, incredible) colleagues should be able to financially access appropriate fieldwork opportunities.
I am excited for the personal challenge of running my second marathon, as well as contributing as a team by running and raising funds together! I appreciate your support and can’t wait to cross the finish line!
