Bio: 
Hi! I'm a Master's student studying Public Health at Brown University. Global Health and HIV are my passion, as well as languages! Right now my research focus is on issues surrounding HIV linkage to and retention in care in underserved populations as a Global Health Scholar. I have a BA in Political Science, Spanish Translation & Interpretation, and East Asian Studies from the University of Arizona, where I am from. Currently, apart from my studies I work as an HIV test counselor with AIDS Project Rhode Island, and as a medical recorder, Spanish interpreter and administrator at the Rhode Island Free Clinic. Driven by the health inequalities I witnessed growing up in a border state, I hope to become a culturally and linguistically competent physician and advocate of social change. I also conduct research part-time at Brown’s Center for Behavioral & Preventive Medicine using meta analytic methods to elucidate associations between alcohol, drugs, risky sexual behavior and HIV. Through these experiences, I've gained a strong interest in evidence-based medicine and carrying out research to improve health interventions and ultimately the health outcomes of patients. My long-term goals include becoming a physician researcher specializing in women’s health and infectious disease.
