My name is Aluel Deng Arou (she/her/hers). I am a senior double majoring in Public Health and Biochemistry. This summer, I interned with the CDC ¬†Bacterial Meningitis Laboratory under the Division of Bacterial Diseases where I assisted the team with testing the meningitis samples. I received this internship through the Bevier program, the public health internship program at Agnes Scott that places public health majors and minors into different internship sites. This internship experience taught me a lot of invaluable skills that I can apply in different work environments. The thing I enjoyed most about this internship is the supportive group dynamic that helped me thrive and grow in this position. Everyone prioritized my learning and made sure that I was getting the skills and experience I needed which helped me to develop my research and oral communication skill set.”
