Favorite country I've traveled to and why: Madagascar, because of the unique landscape, as well as the flora, fauna, and people that live there.

Why I'm interested in global health: Because it has a potential to make a huge impact in places all over the globe, and to do so it is necessary to synthesize information and methods from a variety of disciplines and fields of study.
