[Humans of ISC67] Participant Edition: Warren Dwallow
#1 Please introduce yourself!
My name is Warren Dwallow, a Kenyan, currently residing in Nairobi, Kenya. I'm a finalist (6th year) pursuing a Bachelor in Medicine and a Bachelor in Surgery at University of Nairobi, in Nairobi, Kenya. I am passionate about global health and look forward to learn more about handling major global issues with fellow ISC67 members. I love running, cycling, cooking and hanging out with friends.
#2 What is your favorite thing about your country/city? Why?
Kenya is a land filled with great nature and wildlife, which even I myself is far from exhausting in terms of travelling and visiting within the country. The country is quickly developing especially around the large cities which is amazing to see but this aside, great parts of the country is filled with wonderful sceneries, beautiful sounds of calmness that most would find therapeutic after a busy week in the city and the best of all, warm and welcoming people. Travelling and meeting new people within the currently often reminds me that I have a reason to be proud of my country. The food here is to die for. I wish you could visit and have a taste at it on your on. If you don't believe then search in google of the delicacies here. I warn you, that your mouth will not stop watering, haha. Welcome to Kenya!!!
#3 What made you want to join ISC67 and your table? What would you like to achieve through the conference?
I learnt about ISC67 from a friend who he attended an online session. He was so excited and positive about it and knowing that I have an interest in global health matters, he encouraged me to apply for the ISC67. I researched on it and even found out on what they strive to develop in the members, which Dzuy (in charge of General Affairs in ISC), gave me a profound reply. Of course based on his participation at ISC, the main value that ISC tries to cultivate in the members is the spirit of free inquiry. His answer won me over. I was looking forward to meet new people and share on ideas about intractable issues faced globally. I look forward to learn how to think through problems and come with solutions that are feasible at both large and small scale. I hope to have learnt ways of approaching organizations and successfully convince them to share in the noble cause. Finally, I'm looking forward to making wonderful friends and to keep contacts to network.
