What are you most looking forward to this service year?

I am most looking forward to meeting and interacting with members of my own community. At the same time, I am excited to witness the impact of NWSHC in my very own, Belmont Cragin, neighborhood.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?
My career goal is to become a dentist.

I'm interested in learning about...

stigma in healthcare, addressing mental health stigma, how to cope with mental illness.
