This past week of ISM has been very exciting.
Before this week, I had an interview, but it was cancelled due to the unavailability of the medical professional. Despite her absence, I decided to call her back later next week to see if we can reschedule the interview. When I spoke to the receptionist, she gave me the personal phone number of the professional and she said that she would contact me regarding the interview. Later that day, I was contacted her; she told me that she had a family emergency and that she forgot to cancel the interview. We decided to reschedule interview for this week on October 19, 2017 at 12:30 pm. The interview went very well! I was able to gain a broader perspective on public health, and my interviewer/interviewee gave me information regarding deciding and funding my medical school. I appreciate all the help she gave me, and I hope that in the future I can ask her to be my mentor.
Moreover, I have started to think about my original work. I am leading towards a research paper regarding the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the African continent. Hopefully, this somewhat correlates with my final project, but I am already thinking how I want my presentation board to be done and how and when to gather my research.
