Over 60% of new diseases affecting humans also infect animals. Vets are playing an increasingly important role in safeguarding human health. 

I believe that we can conserve wild flora and fauna, feed every person on the planet and protect everyone against any disease, without harming the planet. If experts from every nation can work together to solve the world’s greatest problems, we can be boundlessly ambitious. We’ve come so far but have so much further to go.

International cooperation of the greatest minds in the world mean we can be boundlessly ambitious. We’ve come so far but have so much further to go.

I’m a veterinary medicine student at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in London with a passion for achieving global health by using a ‘One Health’, interdisciplinary approach, aided by the latest technology and knowledge.

On my quest, I am lucky enough to hold positions in a few organizations and student groups that collectively seek to achieve a healthy, peaceful world:

  • Logistics coordinator for the RVC’s Global Health Society, which is a branch of Medsin (which you can find out more about on the “Get Involved” page!)
  • I’m one of three student representatives of the UK branch of the Wildlife Disease Association
  • This September I will take on the role of Communications Director of the rebranded Students for Global Health charity (formerly Students for Global Health), which is the National Member Organisation (NMO) of the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA).

I am astoundingly lucky to be Lead Researcher and science programming advisor for the Hay Festival and its Hay Levels education project. I get to interview some world-class thinkers at the world’s premier arts, literature, politics and science festival.
