I am passionate about ending the stigma against mental health, especially in the Black and LGBTQIA+ communities.

I wanted a psychology education that focused on preparing me for the clinical field and was committed to multiculturalism and social justice so I can work directly with clients across different cultures, races, sexualities, and genders.

What do you want to do with your degree?

With my degree, I plan to pursue my PsyD and become a Child and Adolescent Psychologist, primarily for Black and LGBTQIA+ people.

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

I first got interested in the mental health profession in high school after seeing so many peers suffer from mental health and not have any proper help. I decided to take psychology my senior year and knew I wanted to pursue it as a career.
