[ “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.]

About Me

My name is Polina Elagin and I am a Turpin High School graduate from Cincinnati, Ohio. At The Ohio State University, I intend on majoring in finance and public health while participating in the Business Scholars program. As an organized and hardworking student, I am driven to further my education and receive a Master’s in Health Management. In the future, I hope to use my knowledge to join others in pushing for the introduction of personalized healthcare into hospitals worldwide. When I am not focused on my studies and accomplishing my goal, I enjoy dancing, baking, hiking, and volunteering within my community. I am an avid believer in the idea that every person you will ever meet will help shape who you will become in the future. As a result, I try my best to involve myself within a diverse community and volunteer within different organizations. By attending The Ohio State University, I hope to immerse myself further into a diverse community and develop the knowledge I need to accomplish my goals. If you have any questions or would like to get to know me further, do not hesitate to ask!
