#GROWCommunity17: New Beginnings

Author: Keyonna Evans

Today I watched a live birth and my life changed. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to make a difference in someone’s life. No matter how big or small, I wanted to make an impact. Growing up in the environment I did, I was exposed to some awful things, which pushed me towards public health. But watching this new life (literally) enter the world, it hit me. I know what I want from public health. I have decided I want to work in child/maternal public health. This career idea was only confirmed when I was teaching health initiatives at schools and loving every minute of it. I have found my calling and it is the best feeling in the world.
