"I chose to pursue a postgraduate degree in Public Health because of my passion for improving population health outcomes. With a background in the medical field, I became increasingly interested in addressing the social and environmental determinants of health and wanted to make a tangible difference in communities.
I am inspired by the multidisciplinary nature of Public Health and its potential for broad societal impact through preventive measures and comprehensive approaches.

What does social sciences mean to you?
"To me, social sciences encompass the study and understanding of human society and behaviour. It involves exploring the intricate dynamics of individuals, groups, and societies, and the various factors that shape their interactions and experiences. Social sciences provide valuable insights into how individuals function within their social, cultural, and economic contexts. It also involves analysing patterns, conducting research, and developing strategies to address societal challenges and promote well-being. Ultimately, social sciences provide a framework for working with individuals, fostering positive change, and contributing to the betterment of society."
