Mental Health Science & Maternal and Child Health

What are your career goals?

I hope to receive my PhD and become a licensed professional working with mental illness in the developing world and with low SES and refugee communities in the United States. I also aspire to be involved in research in third world nations examining trauma treatment and interventions for children and adolescents.

What sparked your interest in global health?

As an adopted child from India, I have always had an interest in the developing world and the lives of children in developing nations. After completing research internships in both Tanzania and India and working closely with the refugee community in Salt Lake City, I developed a true passion for global health and working within the sphere of global mental health.

How do you see yourself making a difference in public health because of the Global Health Scholarship?

I believe that the Global Health Scholarship not only provides me with the incredible opportunity of studying at Johns Hopkins University, but it also offers an opportunity for expansion in the area of global mental health. I believe that through engaging in research and study, I will be able to invest in furthering the field of global mental health and help to define its place within public health. I hope to use my education and scholarship to create more knowledge surrounding mental health in the developing world and further the understanding of trauma in the global sense.

Who inspires you and why?

I am continually inspired by my heritage. Being from India and knowing how blessed I am to be adopted and raised in a home with a loving mother drives me toward my desire of helping those in the developing world. I am also inspired by my family. My sister and mother are models of strength and intelligence, and they frequently inspire me to go out and make a difference in the lives of others. I am also driven and inspired by people of all backgrounds and plights. After living internationally and developing relationships with people from many different places, I have come to both love and care about improving the lives of others. I am passionate about sharing knowledge and learning from everyone I encounter, and hope to provide positive change for those that I work with.
