Personal statement about APHA-SA: I am humbled by the opportunity of working for APHA-SA. I have been actively involved in medical students’ organization activities in my country for a long time. APHA is a voice of public health students. As students are imminent prospective employees APHA-SA provides an excellent link to navigate between the two shores. I am a Co-chair of opportunities committee spearheading the role of APHA-SA of exposing fellow students to potential jobs, fellowships, scholarships and volunteer opportunities from all over the world
