If a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, What’s a Selfie Worth?
Global Health Corps is a fellowship program that aims to create the next generation of global health leaders. The program model pairs two fellows — one national and one international — within a placement organization and gives them tools and supports them to develop into confident professionals. While certain things during our fellowship were beyond our control, we knew there was one thing we could always count on: each other.
Over the past year, we took a selfie together every day we were together — usually in the office, but as our project gained momentum, we got more creative, snapping photos during retreats, on co-fellow date nights and even during Skype chats.
We love our selfie collection because it illustrates the evolution of our relationship from strangers to steadfast supporters of one another, and capture so many memories from this past year, even if they just barely capture both our faces in the same frame.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we didn’t feel like it was right to wrap up this year without getting in one thousand words or less about our selfie project.
