My name is Ashley Lambert and I am currently a senior transfer student. I bring greetings from the one of the best Historical Black Colleges in the nation- Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University(Normal AL), a.k.a The HILL. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, minor in Chemistry. So far, the greeting from South Alabama has been very inviting and engertic. I am looking forward to the next couple of years in regards to making new network connections and furthering my education. Personally about me, I am 23 years old, I come from a big family and my hometown is Fort Deposit (Lowndes County) AL. I am looking forward to expanding my horizon into the health care field which brings me here to Univ. of South Alabama.
Therefore one of my goals here at University of South Alabama is explore and to be very engeritc about pursuing a degree in Health Education. The Health Care Field is changing even as I write this blog, if you would just listen to the news or READ a newspaper, the turn around is very eye catching. I want to be able to help individuals learn how to better take care of themselves such as expanding their knowledge of proper hygiene, prevention of pregnacy and sexual transmitted disease and learning how to properly fix a meal. I am currently a young african american female that is overweight and is in need of a serious nutrition shake up. Being vulernable to the many health risks such as diabeties and hypertension is no laughing matter. I want to be able to TALK THE TALK and WALK THE WALK when I am telling others how important it is to change their eating habits and to know the ends and outs of protecting themselves from pregnacy and sexual transmitted diseases.
Upon completion of my degree , I would like to use the knowledge and experience obtained from Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical Univ. and the Univ. South Alabama in and out of the classrooms to further my professional career by taking the National Certification Exam which upon successful completion, will allow me to become a Certified Health Education Specialist. My dream jobs include working for the Center for Disease and Control at headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia and to become a Superintendent of a Public School System.
