Biography: My name is Nathnael Mengistie, and I am a first-year student at Princeton University studying International Affairs and Public Policy with minors in Global Health and French. I am also a pre-medical student, and I hope to enroll in a MD/MPH program after I graduate.
Growing up, my parents used to tell me and my sister that the only thing they could pass on to us is the gift of education. Since I was born and raised in Ethiopia, I knew why they emphasized the importance of education. Although Ethiopia and other developing countries are experiencing economic growth, there is still a lot that needs to be done. I specifically want to work in public health and medicine because it's a big problem not just in developing countries but also the world.
I am a person with big dreams and aspirations, and I will work tirelessly to achieve them.
