“It is a great satisfaction to participate in the Ventanilla de Salud program. Providing health resources is one of the pillars of my profession (nursing). I am very grateful to be able to do it in this program in a country different from mine. I loved being able to travel to communities that I did not know, living with people from different cultures and being able to contribute to that important part of life that is health.”
My name is Daniela Guadalupe Castillo Castro, I am from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. I graduated in October 2019 from the University of Sonora in Hermosillo, and I am about to finish my year as a social service intern at Clinica Amistad in Tucson, Arizona. Unfortunately, my social service was interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, so I had to stop going to the clinic, but continued to work on my thesis that I am doing with patients from the clinic.
One of my main professional goals is to pursue a career in my country and then get a master’s degree in obstetrics.
My experience working at SEAHEC made me realize that I love working directly with people in rural communities and if I am presented with this opportunity again I would not hesitate to relive it.
