Hey there! My name is Stephanie Teeple, and I’m a rising senior from the beautiful mountains of south-western Virginia. I am the Vice President of Development for the Princeton EWB chapter, and I’ve been a member of the Sierra Leone team since my freshman year. This summer I’m excited to travel for the second time with EWB to Sierra Leone for our project’s Assessment trip.
Heading to Dorma this August will actually be something of a homecoming for me. Last summer I worked as a research intern at Wellbody Alliance, the local health NGO that serves as our EWB community partner, for ten weeks. Global health is my primary interest in the world of international development – I’m studying global health and Middle-East policy at school – and I plan to go to medical school after graduation. Working with EWB has provided me with rich background experiences that will continue to shape my approach to global health and development challenges and issues.
In my spare time I like to watch action movies, read, dance, see new places and cook (with my music cranked to max volume). I enjoy advising underclassmen students as an RCA, adrenaline-inducing government bus trips to Freetown, and eating far too many mangos. Ciao!
