Through her interest in animal rights, Celine has learned about the risk of zoonoses such as COVID-19 and mad cow disease and wanted to encourage public awareness about zoonoses in order to prevent further disease outbreaks. She realizes that working with CiH is not only the best way to put this thought into action but also pursue her interest in public health. Eventually, she hopes that she could combine her interest in public health, sustainability, and animal rights to contribute to CiH.

Anika has always had a strong passion for health related sciences. She hopes to further explore the field by educating and facilitating discussion on numerous public health issues. She believes the future is in further integrating science into public policy and educating younger teens on the matter.
