"Through the Magill fellowship I will build the skills needed to broaden my scientific horizons and translate my scientific training into actionable change. Senegal needs leaders in research to implement pathogen surveillance with real-time data sharing for rapid outbreak response and support of public health efforts."

“Persistent gender inequality in science has severely limited women from achieving their potential to effectively contribute to scientific knowledge. I would like to grow as a leader and thereby encourage and inspire other scientists – especially women in South Asia."

“Advocating and changing the mindset of the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) towards malaria elimination has been a challenge in Mozambique. Taking the advantage of the internship at WHO/GMP I strongly believe that I will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to support the NMCP of Mozambique.”
