When will you graduate? I plan to graduate in December 2018.
What are your career plans? I’m still in the process of figuring out what I want to do, but if I had to decide today, I would want to work with kids in a school setting as a counselor! I love working with kids. They’re so creative, resilient, and hopeful.
Why did you major in psychology? I decided to major in psychology because I’ve always had a passion for helping people. I’ve been empathetic since I was little. I’ve always felt this indescribable need to fix people who aren’t happy. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible, but when I receive a degree in psychology, I’ll be able to help people feel happy at a more successful rate!
What do you do for fun? In my free time I enjoy painting, drawing, watching Netflix, and napping. I love doing arts and crafts. It’s a great way to activate my imagination and create!
What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? Last semester I was presented with the Whitney Radder Award for my work tutoring through the Phuture Phoenix program. It was such an amazing honor to receive the award from Whitney’s mother and uncle. It was definitely an experience I will never forget and that I will always treasure.
What’s your favorite movie, book, and TV show related to psychology? My favorite movie is The Shining, my favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Dexter is one of my favorite TV shows.
What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating? It’s really difficult to narrow down the long list of things I hope to accomplish here. If I had to pick one, I’d choose being a research assistant for one of the amazing professors from our psychology department. I think it would be a priceless experience where I would learn things that cannot be taught in a classroom.
What else do you want people to know about you? I’m going to be the Psi Chi officer of public relations next semester and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of such an amazing organization! I’m also really looking forward to using Psi Chi as a way to meet new people with similar interests in psychology.
