Maya is a distinguished Carr scholar and Rutgers College alumna. Her aspirations of pursuing a career in health policy have drawn her to major in Public Health. In addition, Maya’s educational prowess has provided her with the opportunity to become a student in the five-year Bachelors of Science and Masters of Public Health program at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
Understanding that the Project L/EARN experience would afford her many opportunities, Maya reneged on the chance to possibly travel abroad for the summer. In previous years, she’s ventured to the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, California and Singapore among other places. She appreciates the effort that the Project L/EARN staff exerts to ensure that each student is successful in the program. Maya says Project L/EARN has provided her with room to interact with a group of intellectually stimulating and friendly young women. She’s also gained a greater understanding of statistics and its role in research.
While Project L/EARN’s intense workload came as a surprise to Maya, the program further convinced her that health policy is a likely field for her to pursue. Thus in the future, she plans to become a hospital administrator.
