Hello everyone! As always, procrastination has gotten the best of me, but better late than never, right? My name is Aryana Rasti, I am going to be a junior starting in the Fall semester and am a Neuroscience major with a concentration in Comparative Animal Behavior and minor in Business Studies. After I graduate from Drake, I hope to attend medical school. I am so excited to go to Uganda and see a part of the world so far away. During this trip, I hope to gain a different perspective about life, and have an experience I never dreamed of having. I am very excited to see how the health care in Uganda works and in what ways it differs from ours. I can't wait to interact with both the medical staff and locals to get a good grasp of what the medical field is like. Also, I am extremely excited for the Safari, and I heard at some point in time hippos are involved? (CAN'T WAIT) I hope to take everything I gain through this experience and apply it in my future endeavors. As for the plane ride, I hope falling asleep will be on my side, but if not, I've got a book to read for fun (it's been a while since that's happened), and movies to watch! Can't wait to experience this trip with you all!
