Assessment and Response


Karin L. Bostrom Fellow in Art Therapy

Institute for Therapy through the Arts | Evanston, Illinois

July 15, 2019 | I investigated the process of art therapy this week at Institute for Therapy through the Arts (ITA).

During my session on Tuesday, […]

Week 5:
Exploring the Unknown


Dimensions Fellow in Orthopedic Research

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

July 14, 2019 | I think that all of us have experienced the fear and anxiety of what life will be like after graduating college; entering the “real world,” but after these past few weeks, I am full of excitement for this unknown future. I  love coming to work each day and learning more about my project, how clinical […]

Week 5:
“Thanks For Putting Me Back Together”


Dimensions Fellow in Orthopedic Research

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

July 14, 2019 | I saw this sentence when I was reading the doctor notes: “Thanks for putting me back together,” a firefighter said to the nurse after he got tibia and rib fracture surgery. It is widely believed today that being a doctor means earning a good reputation and good money. However, my grandfather was respected by people as […]

Week 5:
Playing Captain and Angsty Gators


Rogers Fellow in Environmental Studies

Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology | Georgetown, South Carolina

July 14, 2019 | This week was what has become a typical one for me: three days searching for larval tarpon, a day helping the biweekly fauna cruise crew, and a few intermittent hours doing data analysis. Though it was somewhat “typical”, what transpired was no less exciting than previous weeks. Garrett and I had another memorable alligator encounter […]

Stop To Smell The Flowers


Black Fellow in STEAM Education

Generation Teach STEAM Academy | Denver, Colorado

July 14, 2019 | July 14th, 2019 How is it possible that I only have one week left teaching my hilarious students?! These kids make me laugh constantly. For example, the other day during my passing period I got an email that one of my students signed me up for SoundCloud because I need to listen to better music. […]

Week 5:
The Nitty-Gritty


Bryan International Fellow in Adolescent Well-Being

Centre for Emotional Health, Macquarie University | New South Wales, Australia

July 14, 2019 | My time here in Australia is flying! I can’t believe it’s been five weeks. I’m hoping to launch my research project very soon. This experience has taught me that a researchers have a special kind of grit and emotional intelligence, and research is not something that can be rushed.  Although I was originally planning to […]

Week 4:
Astonished by the Subtleties


Dimensions Fellow in Orthopedic Research

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

July 8, 2019 | I had my first shadowing this week.  The “first” does not only mean it was the first time I shadowed in this hospital, but also my first time ever shadowing in the US.   Last week I had a lecture on gait and movement clinical analysis and developed a basic understanding of what is measured. This […]
