My name is Zainab Korashi. I started my MPH in 2019. My specialisation is a combination of two that I am very passionate about: gender and women's health as well as primary care. I am passionate about working with women in the primary care space, specifically those of a CALD background, to educate, listen to, and be part of a movement that reduces inequalities faced by this population.
My course has equipped me with a plethora of invaluable knowledge, tools, and connections that empower me to become a successful practitioner who can positively affect change. One piece of advice I'd give to potential students is to keep an open mind and step out of your comfort zone when it comes to subject selection throughout your degree. You may find yourself gravitating towards a stream you never thought you'd be passionate about.
The best part of the MPH course was connecting with staff members at the MSPGH through various committees and getting to know students from all over the world. Fellow students who I am sure will be brilliant game changers in the public health space. I have also thoroughly enjoyed having the privilege of leading the student society into a new and innovative direction, one that fosters student connection, growth, and wellbeing.
