What would people be surprised to know about you? 

People would be surprised to know that I am actually super talkative! I am pretty shy at first, but once I start to get comfortable with someone, you can’t shut me up!

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am passionate about helping women and children who suffer from a variety of problems. Primarily, I would like to offer therapy to those women and children whom have suffered from domestic abuse. My passion is eating disorders, mood disorders, and trauma. 

Why did you chose MSP?

MSP caters to students who have the passion for psychology by providing them with all of the necessary resources to be successful, including the accomplished faculty. What makes MSP different is the environment; as soon as I arrived at the campus, I felt at ease. There are few collegiate environments that make you feel like you are right at home, and MSP did that for me.

What do you plan to do with your degree?

After I complete my degree, I would like to practice psychotherapy for at least a year to gain more experience in the field. After that year, hopefully I will be moved on to my PsyD at MSP.
