Why I chose ESTEEM:

I chose ESTEEM because I was excited about the opportunity to be challenged in ways I never have before. I knew that I want to be a part of the Healthcare sector in non-traditional ways and to do that, I felt I needed a background in innovation.

My capstone project and why I am excited about it:

I am ECSTATIC about my capstone project because I get to work with a small startup to in Côte D’Ivoire that is working to bring renewable and sustainable energy to refugee camps. To add to my experience, we get to visit three refugee camps in Kenya, and I am so thankful for the opportunity!

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM, I hope to be working the Healthcare sector as someone who can combine healthcare principles with my love for people, innovation, and equity.

What I like to do when I’m not working:

My goal is to visit a different restaurant in South Bend each week!
