DegreeGlobal Health and International Comparative Studies ’18
The most meaningful part of my Bass Connections experiences was working with and learning from people I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to collaborate with otherwise. I learned how to be a flexible team member, embracing different communication styles and ways of problem solving. On my global mental health project team, I worked closely with graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. On my education and human development project team, which focused on studying the needs of children in Durham’s transitional housing, I worked with community team members from Families Moving Forward in Durham, staff from the Office of Durham & Regional Affairs, professors from different departments and undergraduates with a wide array of majors.
My senior thesis in Global Health is related to the work of my Bass Connections team. The project is titled “Understanding Community-Based Practices Used by Lay Counselors in a Family Therapy Intervention in Eldoret, Kenya.”
