I had an extremely rewarding and informational experience as an intern part of this public health internship. Interacting with Nigerian doctors, seeing real patients, learning how to treat, prevent, and diagnose diseases, learning how to suture, make a cast, examine labs, etc. are all skills and experiences that I will definitely carry with me as I progress into my future career in the medical field. My final public health project was extremely useful in allowing me to not only understand and learn about the diseases but also how to help those in need of prevention from these diseases and how to protect those in high-risk areas."

My daughter Lucy's transformation is an amazing one to us. She has always been a good student but there is now a sense of direction and focus, a personal invigoration, as well as a greater sense of happiness and satisfaction that shines through her, which we believe stems from her believing in herself more and having a more clear path that she has created for herself.

An obstacle I faced during the internship was with a few of the questions I had planned on asking during my cross-examination with the witness. I struggled to understand which questions would eventually be beneficial to the client. To overcome this challenge, I spent time with Mr. Weber and asked for his opinions. He informed me that what I was planning on implying about the witness through my questions would be illegal, and helped me understand what lines I would be crossing had I gone down that path of questioning. Further, other advocacy professionals and attorneys met with me and gave me insight into how to improve my questions."

The goal of my public health campaign is to inform and educate children, the age group at highest risk, on how to prevent contracting malaria. In order to target children, my public health campaign focuses on the Leadership Initiatives Orphan Care and Independence Program center in Bauchi State, Nigeria. My group and I designed a lesson plan for the caretakers at the orphanage to present to the children as well as various educational activity pages that will motivate the children to concentrate on the preventative measures being taught. Since this important information will be implemented at a young age, the children will easily adapt daily preventative measures early on in their lives.

My team designed a public health campaign that addressed the lack of information about malaria available to children. Children are at high risk for malaria because they do not have fully functioning and strong immune systems. Also, many children in Nigeria are not even aware that such a disease exists or how to prevent it. We designed our campaign with these children in mind; our campaign consists of fun activities that will help build their knowledge about preventing malaria. We are working with LI's Orphan Care Center in Nigeria. We have created lesson plans to give to the orphanage caregivers that will teach the children living there about malaria in an easy to understand, kid-friendly format."
