“I am so grateful for the opportunity to work at the START center with some of the most hardworking and sincere students, staff and faculty. Even my children felt welcomed as part of the START family. In my time here, I got to work in 7 projects that spanned across doing systematic reviews to developing mathematical models, with some great clients at the Gates Foundation and Abbott Labs. As a student representative and international student I was also able to be a liaison between students and leadership. START also provided great mentorship and training opportunities that helped me develop skills in project management, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion frameworks, job club, and interview skills. START helped me dedicate protected time for work, and provided funding for my MS. I am so glad that I chose UW and START among the various options that I had for my higher studies!”
