Hey everyone! My name is Brook and I currently attend ISU, where I will be a junior this coming fall. As a Biology major with a minor in Chemistry, I plan to one day join the human health field - though the exact direction remains to be seen! One method of exploring the vastness of the medical domain comes in the form of my study abroad, a public health program from Stellenbosch University in South Africa this summer. Though I have yet to depart and experience this particular adventure, I have little doubt that this trip with surpass even my highest expectations and leave me hungry to explore the rest of our world! Africa has always been the number one country on my list to visit (The Lion King may have been a slight influence), and so this trip is truly the ideal opportunity for both my personal and career goals. I’m looking forward to everything this program has to offer, particularly the things I couldn’t possibly expect.
