Katie Hobika


Educational Background
B.A. in Political Science from Canisius College

Why did you join NHC?
I am interested in pursuing a career in a health-related field, and NHC offered me the chance to get started

What are your plans after NHC?
My plans for the next few years are tbd. I'm aiming to go to medical school in a few years because I hope to be a primary care provider someday.

What sparked your interest in community service?
My parents have always stressed to me that it is important to use my free time to become more educated about my community, and to serve my community in the ways that are needed, for my own growth and for the growth of others. For this year, I have an opportunity to dedicate most of my time towards learning about and serving a new community. I think that this year, and Philadelphia, will leave a significant mark on me, and (hopefully!!) I will leave a small mark on Philly, too!

What excites you the most about serving in Philadelphia?
Learning as much as I can about the City of Brotherly Love!!!

What is your favorite food?
Tahini milkshake from Goldie
