Hi everyone, my name is Ckarla Agudelo, and I'm currently enrolled in the Rhode Island College Health Education graduate program. I primarily decided to go into this profession because my parents, my parents came to the United States from Guatemala at a fairly young age. So English is their second language. Growing up, I noticed that, at times, it was very difficult for them to access resources and support because either they didn't understand or because information wasn't readily accessible to them. So experiencing firsthand the implications that this has a person's life in their families really stuck with me. So when it came time for me to decide what career I wanted to take while in college, his health education program really stood out to me. Not only did they prepare professors to design, implement, and evaluate programs, but they really emphasized cultural responsiveness in inclusivity in all their courses throughout their program. So as I continue my journey as a health educator, I look forward not only to graduating next year, but also continuing to connect families communities, with resources and opportunities that will drive them to become health advocates not only for themselves but for the next generation to come. Thank you.
