    Why choose the UA / What’s awesome about the UA:

    I chose UA because of the university's incredible community. The support services and involvement opportunities that the UA offers have made me feel at home at this large university. When I graduate, I know I will have a community of Wildcats cheering me on as I embark into the real world.

    I hope to obtain an MPH and work in health policy.

     

    Fun Fact about you (hobbies, trivia, etc.):

    My preferred mode of transportation is roller skating and I would love to shapeshift!

    One piece of advice for incoming students (transfer and freshmen):

    Take (healthy) risks and try everything. You are always going to regret the things you didn't do rather than the things you did.
