What would people be surprised to know about you? 

One thing people would be surprised to know about me is, that if I were not continuing my educational and professional career in the medical field, I would have wanted to become a fashion designer.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

A cause I am passionate about is the care and education of children who struggle with mental health and learning disorders.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose to attend MSP because it offered an integrated approach to psychology that encourages students to be robust and ongoing in the process of scientific discovery and clinical application while also recognizing students for their uniqueness and contributions that they may find through their academic endeavors.

What do you want to do with your degree?

Once I obtain my degree, I plan to work as a Limited Licensed Psychologist in any facility, helping children and young adults reach optimum mental health through ambition, compassion, and quality care while also continuing my educational career towards a PsyD in Clinical Psychology.

How did you first get interested in the mental health profession?

My desire to become a Clinical Psychologist manifested itself in different ways, but my interest first sparked in a philosophy class during my freshman year of undergrad.
