Rindi’s messages about her SEAOHUN Internship Experience
As a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine student, I've witnessed a significant uptick in the impact of infectious diseases originating from animals. Surprisingly, sixty percent of human pathogens and a staggering 75% of emerging diseases are zoonotic. My academic journey, particularly in tropical infectious diseases, has allowed me to delve into comprehensive research and surveillance programs focused on these zoonotic diseases.
This unique opportunity not only emphasized the importance of basic research but also left me with an indelible lesson on how rigorous biosafety and biosecurity practices in the laboratory can contribute to the overarching One Health Concept. It's a vital piece of my dream to foster enhanced collaboration between human and animal health in the future.
Equally important, my internship experience has been transformative. It taught me to overcome challenges, rise above adversity, and extract valuable lessons from my struggles. These moments of growth have become integral to my professional and personal development.
