Meet the Interns: Caryn Turner

This summer, SAFE will take a group of talented interns to Uganda for seven weeks, putting their skills to use on our latest projects. Meet one such bright, young intern!

SAFEInterns4Caryn Turner just finished the first year of her Masters in Public Health at the University of Texas where she is a global health major. When she is not writing papers for school she loves to take her dogs out to the park or for a walk around the neighborhood. She also loves spending her weekends with her nephews and niece (Cullen, Jackson and Tybee). She comes from a military family and, as a result, loves traveling. She finds herself with itchy feet quite often, which will be cured very soon when she heads out to Uganda! “I can’t wait to work with SAFE,” she says, “because all I’ve done so far in my masters is learn in the classroom and SAFE has given me the opportunity to actually DO something to initiate a long-lasting positive change in a community. This really gives me the opportunity to do what I’ve wanted to do my whole life, which is work in an international community and help solve a real problem that has been plaguing the people that live there. I could not be more excited to work with SAFE this summer!”
