This past week of ISM has been very exciting.
On Wednesday October 5, we went to independence high school for the annual ISM business symposium. At first, I was extremely nervous. I was surrounded by student who were all focused and determined. I started to compare myself to these students, but when I started talking to them they were just like me: passionate individuals who are using ISM to help propel themselves into their futures. Every student, staff member, and volunteer I meet were kind and very informative. To my surprise, I found a public health administrator for Texas Health. She gave me whole layout of the education to career in public health. I also received feedback from other volunteers on my resume and interview, along with gaining some new information about personal branding, college, and professionalism. Overall I rate my experience a 10 out of 10. I gained new confidence and I am very excited to see how my ISM journey goes through the year.
Moreover, on Wednesday October 11, I have my first informational interview over issues in the public health sector and for a possible mentorship. I currently preparing my interview questions and I have my suit ready to go. I am again nervous, but I will smile through the anxiety and hope to succeed. I hope to gain a lot of information over the information so I can incorporate into my topic proposal, and also have the opportunity to have a mentorship secured.
Ultimately, I am content and appreciative of my current ISM journey, and I hope to continue to learn more
