My name is Yasmin Hussien (she/her), and I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Public Health at The University of Maryland, College Park. My studies have allowed me to understand the public healthcare and formulate ideas on how to contribute to it. The role of the social determinants and their impact on health outcomes manifest in various ways and I always try to get an opportunity to investigate their association. I also worked as a Temsalet domestic violence community trainee; it was a truly unique experience since I was able to directly speak to individuals who spoke to me of their experience and wanted to break the cycle of violence as a community. I created print content for the annual Rahma Domestic Violence Gala, oversaw outreach, and coordinated monthly online and in-person educational activities. I anticipate gaining the opportunity to learn different methods that will help me contribute to my community. Eliminating health disparities in the modern world has been a long-term mission of mine and I especially think that this platform is the perfect way to begin my journey. My career goal is to advocate for public health in various areas of life and child health is a part of that. Like many areas of study, it requires education, financial support, and political commitment. Through community engagement and advocacy, it is possible to increase awareness. When awareness is spread; it is possible to create initiatives that will act upon existing policies toward a better cause.
