Lillian is back! And this time, it's because she wanted to commemorate her Grad School graduation. My girl is now the proud owner of a Master's Degree in Public Health. We love an educated cutie.
"Public health became a passion of mine when I realized how broad human health really is. Medicine, diet and exercise are not the only things that make you healthy. Health involves your physical environment, social activities, and access and barriers that affect wellbeing. Barriers stemming from racism and our society’s infrastructure prevent many from achieving their optimal health. I pursued an advanced degree to learn theories and practical ways in which the health of populations can be improved."
I cannot with the cute little black dress. I love the frills! And I'm so happy I caught Lillian's beautiful smile. She looks like she was having a good thing, but maybe not more fun that she had in Grad School...
"Grad school is definitely not as fun as undergrad, but the experience was well worth it! There were so many more papers and readings than I was used to. Learning about public health during a pandemic helped me appreciate the field more. The pandemic helped expose flaws in our health system and also allowed me to get creative and think of avenues to get people more healthy despite the many challenges they may face . Overall, I had a great time."
Lillian's boyfriend joined us during the shoot as the Capturer of BTS, and also the Silent Hypeman. Her stole was actually made by his company in Ghana. How cool is that?
"I look forward to emerging myself in a role that makes a real difference to people. I plan on having a career that will allow me to provide more access and resources to underserved communities. People deserve to have their voices heard and should be included in all kinds of strategies to take control of their own health."
I'm so happy we were able to get these BEAUTIFUL headshots. New LinkedIn Profile pic, who dis?
Congratulations, Lillian! I can tell you're very passionate about your field of study, and I'm so proud of you :)
