Year in Review

[ “Year in Review”  is where you should reflect on the past year and show how you have evolved as a person and as a student.  You may want to focus on your growth in a particular area (as a leader, scholar, researcher, etc.) or you may want to talk about your overall experience over the past year.  For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]



A- I choose to interview my freshman peer mentor Annika who will be a rising senior. She is an anthropology major who aspires to go to medical school and possibly a masters in medical anthropology. She has not chosen any subspecialty to focus on in anthropology but she has a special interest in cultural anthropology.  Annika has such a refreshing view of medicine because of her anthropology background. She looks to not only help people physically but also connect with them emotionally. She looks to empathize and spread positivity through her work. She has been volunteering at Wexner Medical Center for the last few years and other organizations on campus. She says that she being a volunteer on campus has helped her forge relationships that she says enriched her time at the university.

E- For my volunteer service I choose to spend my time with the second and 7 foundation. The group takes OSU students to Columbus schools and has us read stories to kids and basically help spread positivity and love. This organization really helps Young kids stay happy, every time I walk into the classroom I can feel the excitement that the children have.

About Me

My name is Divya Batchu, I joined The Ohio State University after I was accepted into Health Science Scholars program. Ever since I was a young child I was always had a passion to help others. Watching my dad work tirelessly at the hospital has instilled in me a desire to work in the healthcare profession. I aspire to hopefully work with children and their families in the future.  One field that is really interesting to me is neuroscience, I was really intrigued after taking a psychology class and I hope to learn more about it in the future. Another big part of my life is giving back to my community and I hope to do that here at The Ohio State University. In my free time I enjoy hiking and spending time with friends.
