SBS MPH Student Dawit Rumicha Honored as an Emerging Scholar
First-year MPH SBS concentration student Dawit Rumicha, was honored as an Emerging Scholar at the 2017 International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities & Nations at the University of Toronto.
“There was a central theme I’ve taken away in going from the drawing boards of diversity research to achieving an international recognition for my scholarly work alongside individuals at the masters and doctoral level. Learning the importance of risk taking in advancing education toward what field you are truly passionate about and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. The easiest and most convenient decisions aren’t necessarily the best in self-development. Not every endeavor embarked on will result in success but it’s that trial and error coupled with grit and determination that will result in growing as an individual. Each step of growing will add one more bit of inspiration and motivation towards greater opportunity. It’s truly humbling to see the product of effective teamwork and fearlessness towards challenge alongside growth.”
