I’m Gurram Akhil presently pursuing Master of Public Health from Prasanna School of public health, Manipal. I am a person of simple needs. I have never stopped feeding my curiosity. To learn things while you are at it is an education that I look up to. When you ask where do you see yourself one year from now, the answer is simple and straight. I look forward to learning new skills and improving my knowledge to advance my career. One year from now, I see myself as a knowledgeable professional having an in-depth knowledge of the community and their health. I would attain my MPH degree with very good grades and I would want to get trained in a result-oriented organization that helps to build my career. Within three years I would like to be recognized as an expert in terms of Epidemiological knowledge. During these three years, I would continue learning while I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Non-communicable diseases. I firmly believe that gaining knowledge is endless and limitless and this cycle of learning never stops. I see myself gaining knowledge in the field of public health. There is no enough to learn for me. This process of learning can motivate me to work with new potential. I hope I can repay this liberty in the future. Difficulties will make my mind stronger so I am ready to face challenges that will improve my confidence which will help me to be an expert in the field of public health. The learning from the post-graduation and internship will help me in the long run, the experiences will help me in my future and I will be a great public health expert helping many more students.
