I enjoyed gaining knowledge on key public health concepts through lectures and practicals. This knowledge will enable me to generate ideas and strategies for problem solving in the public health field. I also enjoyed traveling to Iceland to carry out my research project. This helped me develop the useful research skills that I require to excel in my career path.

I appreciate the diverse opportunities provided throughout the course including the opportunity to get involved in a research project that would be globally beneficial. I also appreciate the opportunity to be taught by highly skilled experts in the field and the support that I received from the professors, course organizers and supervisors. Finally, I appreciate how responsive the faculty was to student's feedback.

How did it feel to receive the Dean's Prize?
I was extremely happy when I received this award. I was not expecting it. It actually never crossed my mind. I worked hard to achieve my goals and I am glad that my hard work and motivation was rewarded in this way. I feel even more motivated to soar higher.

What are you doing now/What do you plan on doing after graduation?
I am currently studying medicine at the University of Bristol. I hope to integrate the knowledge I gained from this public health program with that from my medical degree to provide sustainable public health solutions nationally and globally.
