Favorite Quote:

“Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that appears above ground lasts only a single summer. Then it withers away… What we see is the blossom, which passes. The rhizome remains.”  Carl Jung

What would people be surprised to know about you?

People would be surprised to know that I lived in Africa for 10 years. Specifically, West Africa in a little country called The Gambia.

Name a cause that you are passionate about.

A cause that I’m passionate about is associated with an organization called ‘Let’s Go’ stemming out of Oregon. They provide a window of time for our children to play and maneuver with little supervision by affiliation with parks, school playgrounds, rec – centers and other out/in doors location. The idea behind it is to enable our children to develop a sense of responsibility by engaging with the environment without a mediating factor.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose to attend MSP because of its extensive psycho-therapeutic approach.

What do you want to do with your degree?

I would like to use my degree to implement the methods and tools I’ve learned in real-world settings.

What’s your plan for after graduation?

My plan after graduation is to engaged with the dispossessed societies of our time. These individuals are usually neglected, avoided, and have little to no opportunities to soar forward. To provide methods that would improve one’s life is something worth pursuing as a career.
