In a class of over 100 I was visible. In a class of 100 during my introduction to public health class, I would tell my professor what I wanted to with my career. She would say “I’ll get you there”. This is what the public health department at the University of Colorado Denver was to me. That professor took the time and years later would be the one to write my letter of recommendation for a Master of Public Health Application. This department truly sees you, listens to you, and provides the tools you’ll need on your path. As my time here comes to end, I look back with warmth and gratitude and I feel forever indebted to the many caring and talented individuals that taught me on my journey. As I continue, I will lead by your examples. As a public health practitioner I will strive to teach, listen, and truly make those near me feel visible.
