What would people be surprised to know about you? 

That I am knowledgeable in almost everything. Any aspect of life or any informative topic, I can engage in a formal conversation in regards to it.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

Mental Health. It is why I chose to study the field of psychology, as well as believing in order for us to go on and make it day by day our health mentally must be supported and intact.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose the Michigan School of Psychology because the institution focuses solely on psychology in contrast to other institutions where it’s easy to be distracted from the field.

What do you want to do with your degree?

I want to become a therapist for the adult population. I have the willingness to work with a variety of individuals. However, I believe adults are easier to console and work with because you receive more of a straightforward answer as opposed to working with kids.

What are you most looking forward to about your program?

I am looking forward to learning how to properly communicate with patients and be informed about forms of mental illness. I console individuals within my surroundings every day however, being taught a proper way would prepare me for the career I look forward to stepping into.
