December 2018 
2. What are your career plans?
I hope to become a Mental Health Counselor and work in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. 
3. Why did you major in psychology?
I never really had an interest in school and I often struggled in math and science classes.This made me feel like I wasn’t smart enough to succeed in school. My sophomore year of high school I took a psychology class and I really enjoyed it. It was the first time I felt invested in a class and wanted to learn more. I knew growing up that I wanted to help people and better the world and counseling will allow me to do that. 
4. What do you do for fun?
I like to work out at the Kress, participating in my sorority, hanging out with friends, and the occasional Netflix binge.
5. What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of?
Making honor roll every semester and being inducted into Psi Chi. 
6. What’s your favorite movie, book, and TV show related to psychology?
My all-time favorite book is Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. The book is written in English and Russian slang so if that is not your thing the movie adaptation directed by Stanley Kubrick is also great. 
7. What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating?
I hope to make a positive impact on the psychology department and the students within it. I have so many peers and faculty members that I look up and admire and I hope I can set that kind of example to even one student here on campus. 
8. What else do you want people to know about you?
I enjoy playing the ukulele and singing.

1. When will you graduate?
December 2018 (whoop whoop)

2. What are your career plans?
Once I graduate from UWGB, I am planning to further my education and attend graduate school for school psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a School Psychologist for children.

3. Why did you major in psychology?
I majored in psychology because I always knew I wanted to work with children, but I knew teaching wasn’t for me. I have always enjoyed taking psychology classes in high school and I wanted to combine my love for children and psychology, which I then came to find out I made the right choice because I love it!

4. What do you do for fun?
I am a member of Zeta Omega Tau on campus so I love spending time with all my sisters. I also love spending time with my family and going home on some weekends. I enjoy being outside whether that be rollerblading, biking, or even just taking a walk, I love the outdoors. Aside from that, I love spending my time volunteering and being surrounded with good company.

5. What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of?
One of my academic experiences I am most proud of is getting accepted into Psi Chi, the Psychology Honors Society. Too add to that, I am definitely most proud of being voted secretary for Psi Chi for the Fall 2018 semester, I am beyond blessed and honored!

6. What’s your favorite movie, book, and TV show related to psychology?
Well, aside from school work, I do not have much free time, but the only show I watch is Grey’s Anatomy, and I feel like there are some episodes dealing with psychology (I love Grey’s Anatomy).

7. What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating?
I really hope I can make more connections with Psychology professors before I graduate. I feel like they have so much knowledge to give and my first few years here at UWGB, I was always intimidated to go and meet with them, so I really hope I can be able to get to know them more and expand my knowledge.

8. What else do you want people to know about you?
No matter what, I always try to see the best in things. College is a stressful rollercoaster for most students and if I stay positive, I feel like it helps. I just always try to stay happy!!
