Xzyla Randielli Regalado, a BS Public Health III student of UP Visayas, participated in two online summer schools in Taiwan and Romania. 

The 2021 International Summer School stint in Taiwan was at the National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, from August 2-11. 

Answering the question, “Sustainable Environment, Myth or Reality?” was at the program's core. This included discussions on the industry, innovation, infrastructures, sustainable cities, and energy. A crash course on the Chinese Language and workshops on improving presentation, leadership, sustainable projects, management skills, and proposal writing skills were also included. 

Regalado reported that her team was awarded the “Most Creative Solution” award from among group presentations at the end of summer school. 

More importantly, she said that she understood the importance of SDGs (sustainable development goals) and how developed and developing countries craft their SDGs. She noted that developed countries tend to focus more on infrastructures (sustainable cities and the likes). In contrast, developing countries like the Philippines focus on addressing poverty, zero hunger, clean water, and sanitation. 

The Romanian experience was at the West University of Timisoara entitled Late Summer School from August 20 – September 12, 2021. 

Regalado said that as a Public Health student, she took Biochemistry Aspects in Various Medical Conditions from among the program offered because this would be helpful for her. 

“It helped me understand how biochemistry is always involved when studying diseases. We got to meet doctors and health care workers and talk to them about diseases. They had patients who were willing to show us their conditions and the treatments they undergo,” she said of her experience.
