One of my mentors

My friend and mentor Marino Francispillai. We last saw each other in India in March 2009. I was spinning my wheels and not sure what to do with my life and career. We visited a poor community where he interviewed a local leader about issues affecting their social progress and economic development. Inspired by his work and the advice he gave me, I decided to follow in his footsteps and study public health. So grateful for the lessons he has taught me and his profoundly positive influence on my life over the years. A remarkable human being.
