MSc Global Public Health Statement of Purpose

I hope to be accepted to study towards the MSc Degree in Global Public Health at Copenhagen University, my first choice for graduate school. It is my conviction that completing your program will provide me with the optimal springboard upon which to make the fullest contribution possible to society: evaluating and implementing public health projects and interventions that promote health and prevent disease. My special focus is human nutrition, and I look forward to decades to come helping individuals to develop more healthy lifestyles because of diet, losing weight, managing disease, and alleviating painful symptoms.

My children have been my principal focus until now, and they no longer need their mother as was once the case. Thus, I have time, attention, energy, and I fully intend to give myself entirely to Global Public Health for the balance of my professional lifetime. Since the area that I know best will always be nutrition, I hope to make particularly effective use of natural remedies for treating chronic disease. I hope to work for non-profit organizations dedicated to both nutrition and public health in Africa, especially my native Uganda.


I seek to address the issues of poor nutrition, diabetes, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS, obesity, and tobacco and alcohol abuse, with a central focus on lifestyle changes, particularly nutrition, putting to effective use the many important things that I will learn as a student towards the MSc. Degree at the University of Copenhagen. I bring with me to your program extensive professional experience in personalized nutrition and dietary planning, based on body types and health goals. This includes the development of habit-forming nutrition regimens and plans, counseling and educating concerning healthy dietary options and alternatives as well as planning for special needs diets, including low sodium, diabetic, and gluten-free diets.

Here in Europe, where I look forward to spending most of my energy, I especially look forward to epidemiological research as well as HIV-AIDS networking and support, with a focus on the interconnections between research and practice. I want to help homeless people and victims of violence to shelter and have a safe place to heal, protecting them from contagious disease and treating the ones that have it. My central, long-term professional goal is to work as a health promotor, alongside and in support of health departments at the municipal level, food companies, and a wide range of other healthcare professionals and civic servants. A native speaker of Swahili, with bilingual fluency in Danish and English, I look forward to contributing to the diversity of your Global Health Program at Copenhagen University as a woman from Africa who is well informed about health challenges faced by Africans, both at home and abroad, especially in Denmark, where I have lived for the past 17 years, raising my own family.

I am most pleased to have had the privilege to absorb as much as I could of Sweden, Holland, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, Germany, and Dubai, and in the south Kenya and South Africa, learning by osmosis, always positive, independent, and persevering. Much of my early time in Denmark was invested in Danish, of which I am immensely proud, on top of bringing my English up to international standards of excellence. Currently enrolled in the last semester of my undergraduate studies for the BSc in Global Nutrition and Health, I am writing my bachelor's thesis and finishing a course in Biochemistry.  

 

Thank you for considering my application to Global Public Health at Copenhagen University.
