During my time at the School of Public Health this summer, I learned how to communicate effectively with a team and a number of study participants within the research. In addition, time management is also another skill I capitalized on. When I went to Vietnam for my second internship, I began to understand the value of listening intentionally because I did not know how to speak Vietnamese. But actively trying to understand what people were trying to communicate made things easier and helped me learn a bit of Vietnamese as well. I taught fifth graders English, organized a workshop on the use of social media(Facebook prominently) and also designed a trailer for the organization I worked with, Friends for Street Children.
