"I feel empowered to know that I can take steps towards being the change I have always wanted to see."

“This program has been so instrumental to my personal growth these past 3 years. I’ve been so motivated to consider global perspectives, sought discomfort as I explored unfamiliar areas and ideas, and found an incredible community of passionate and ambitious change-makers. I know my own TAP has opened so many doors for me to explore public health on a deeper level and I feel empowered to know that I can take steps towards being the change I have always wanted to see.”​
Avani G., Dublin City SChools
