The BRITE Center continues to teach me vital life skills, each and every day. I build and refine both my team and individual work ethic. I greatly enjoy my volunteer time and the BRITE Center readily furthers my enthusiasm for learning.While I always knew I wanted to pursue statistics, I had no idea which area I wanted to specialize in until recently when Epidemiologist Dr. Susan Cochran referred me to the BRITE Center. My work at the Center sparked my interest in health-related fields and now I plan to combine my love of data analysis with my newfound interest in reducing health disparities. Analyzing data from the Los Angeles County jail system to target the rehabilitation needs of inmates is one of my daily tasks at the BRITE Center that truly inspired me to use my analytical skills to better the lives of those around me.
