Hi, my name is Prakashini (Sonam) Banka. I am a 2nd year PhD candidate in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Trinity College Dublin. My background is in Psychology (I’m not a nurse!) and my research interest is mainly in children’s mental health.
My PhD research project is known as the Healthy Schools Programme and it measures the physical and mental health outcomes of urban disadvantaged children based on the WHO model of health promoting schools.
I love Bollywood movies and music. I also enjoy art (wish I could be a tiny bit artistic) and I love singing (in the bathroom).
