Nini Lin Ya, who is so happy because she has received encouragement that she has never received before in her life

Hello! I am Steph and I’m from Boston. My family and I moved to Boston in 2004 from Haiti, where I was brought up. I went to Boston State funded Schools, and from that point I went to Tufts, from which I recently graduated!

In Tufts, I studied Global Relations (Focus: Worldwide Wellbeing, Nourishment, and Climate) and Local area Wellbeing. I turned out to be truly energetic about worldwide consideration and differences and weak medical services frameworks.

On the voyaging side, I truly began going in eleventh grade in Secondary School where I went on a school bunch visit to China (Beijing and Shanghai). From that point on, I was chomped by the movement bug, and have been to eight nations from that point onward!

I didn’t promptly make the association between my adoration for worldwide wellbeing and my affection for voyaging, however in the long run, subsequent to taking more seminars on wellbeing strategy, the ACA, and absence of admittance to specific gatherings, I realized there was seriously developing and figuring out how to be done universally.

I presently work at the Harvard Worldwide Wellbeing Foundation, where I’m a Staff Colleague and assist with planning gatherings, discussions, and meeting with thought forerunners in the field like Wellbeing Clergymen from nations with undermined wellbeing frameworks.

I’m an educator of one since I get to go to show myself more the world and its wellbeing frameworks. Up to this point, I have made a trip to China, Italy, Rwanda, India, Chile, Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay. Contrasted with voyaging monsters and trailblazers, eight nations in six years is definitely not an enormous accomplishment, yet it helps keep me grounded to return and find opportunity to recuperate from each excursion. Voyaging can be difficult work!

TT: Love it! ( For perusers, I was on that excursion to China referenced above, and it was developmental for us all.) Presently, Steph, inform us really regarding your #1 ventures up until this point.

S: Machu Picchu was the best experience I continued the year before! As a feature of my concentrate abroad program in Chile (only south of Peru), we as a whole got a movement payment, thus the program had the option to pay for our boarding pass (which is a wonder since airfare is costly!)

Since we were a gathering of 15 Tufts understudies, we separated ourselves into more modest gatherings to make our movements less overpowering. My companions and I remained in Ollantaytambo, however others remained in Aguas Calientes (the town Machu Picchu is in).
