Headshot of Berenice Medina

As an Idaho native and Mexican-American, Berenice Medina currently lives in Nampa, Idaho and is passionate about not just helping others, but seeing them thrive. Whether one is working in a healthcare or a community setting, she is inspired by the field of public health and its ability to promote health in unique environments. At her core, she values the principles of honesty, integrity and humility. Not only is she disciplined and quick to adapt, she is empathetic and sincere in all matters, personal and professional. Some of her strengths include: time management, emotional intelligence, writing and public speaking. From this experience, she hopes to, more than anything, learn from her mentee. As a firm believer in the idea that we are here to inspire others, she is ecstatic to support and learn from her mentee. Perhaps Booker T. Washington said it best, “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.”
