|High School:||South Eugene HS|
Q and A with Sarah
I chose Dartmouth because I wanted the opportunity to live in New England, study geography, row, study abroad, refine my French language skills, enjoy the outdoors, engage in public health (even before President Kim arrived!) and be close enough to Boston to get small doses of a city when I need it.
How long have you been rowing and what got you interested in rowing?
I have been rowing since my freshman year in high school. An older friend was rowing and loving it. He jokingly asked me if I was interested in joining a sport where my short-ness would actually be an asset. I showed up to an open practice and was hooked!
What extra curricular activities are you involved with on campus?
I am a co-director of the Dartmouth Coalition for Global Health, an Undergraduate Advisor (Dartmouth's version of an R.A.), a student assistant at Baker-Berry library, a Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisor, a Mentor Against Violence, and a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority.
What are your future plans, if any?
I hope to pursue a Masters in Public Health and ultimately a PhD in Public Health as well. With those degrees I hope to work in global health, with a potential focus on children and infectious disease.
