Advice for students: Grad school can be really hard physically, mentally and emotionally. Make sure you take time away from your studies to maintain your support system, go for a run or do whatever else you need to do in order to stay sane. It is a marathon, not a sprint. I also think the best learning and growth comes from finding the right mentor for you. Make sure you have spent some time working with faculty before you develop your committee so that you can make sure you have the right group of people to best support your growth. 

Favorite memory: It would be impossible to pick one! There were so many wonderful memories I have, but the highlights would definitely be all of the time I spent with other students outside of the program going for walks, cooking, gardening, and taking trips together.

The first year can be stressful with a lot of things going on. Stay connected with your peers. I am grateful to have met and walked through this journey with them together.

One of the friends of our main host, the advisor for the Field Epidemiology Training Program, took us out to Domboshava Rocks, this beautiful, beautiful place outside with cave paintings and colorful lichen outside the city (that’s where I am in the picture). We were there at sunset and everything was almost glowing; taking some time to step outside the city and a place that had been special and stunning to people for thousands of years reminded me to take a step back and appreciate my time there. I got to do some fascinating work and build connections and relationships that I hope to continue.

Advice for students: Never forget your purpose here. It’s easy to forget the WHY when you’re swamped in homework and midterms, but hang on tight to your goals. When you achieve a goal, enjoy the moment, don’t look to the next goal right away (otherwise what’s the point of setting goals!). Keep a failures resume – stay humble and remember that it only takes one success to make it all worth it. Don’t be afraid to push yourself – the comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing grows there. Be kind to others, people never remember what you say, they only remember how you made them feel. Enjoy this special time to find yourself and your dreams!
