What initially interested you in C-TAC?

My initial interest in C-TAC came from its mission of assuring quality healthcare for those who may otherwise not have access. The push for equity in healthcare C-TAC also reaches out to smaller groups which try to create political change, something that I have focused on in my studies and hope to be able to do in the future.

What are three things you want to learn during your time here?

The main thing I hope to learn from C-TAC is how to determine what groups to form partnerships with and more importantly how to maintain long term relationships with them. I am also looking forward to learning the specifics in the process of implementing legislation. Lastly, I hope to learn the intricacies of healthcare policy and legislation.

What are you most looking forward to this summer interning at C-TAC?

I am excited to have an opportunity in which I can work towards reforming an unjust healthcare system and to learn how individuals can congregate and effect material and meaningful change.

What is something everyone should know about you?

Something that I would like others to know about me is that I am a great listener and work best when I can collaborate and build off of ideas with others.
