On my first day of service, I was a little nervous to meet with my mentor. I had only met Julie once before and that was during my initial interview with Global Links. I was intimidated by her at first, and I was afraid that our personalities wouldn't mesh. Julie seemed to be on the extroverted side, and I am a shy person. But, I loved the mission of Global Links right from the beginning and I knew I wanted to be part of the organization. Unbeknownst to me, I would soon realize that first impressions aren’t everything. My mentor has become a great resource, colleague and friend. I am very excited for the journey that lies ahead. This year of service is going to be an amazing learning opportunity for me.

I was running late on Tuesday, August 29th as I parked my car and ran from the parking garage to the Allegheny County Health Department building in my flip flops and dress clothes. Standing in front of the building’s steps, I took my heels out of my backpack and traded them out for the flip flops on my feet. Having just one minute to spare, I took a deep breath and walked into my first day of Pre Service Orientation (PSO) with the National Health Corps Pittsburgh.
