What would people be surprised to know about you? I’m allergic to oranges and tomatoes, that surprises most people!
What is a cause that you’re passionate about? One of the causes that I am the most passionate about is the Flint Water Crisis. It is difficult, for me, to see the magnitude of damage done from the lead contamination in water. So many people I grew up with, along with my family, had to venture to churches to pick up free bottled water to use for cooking and bathing. I know many people who were affected by this. I’m glad to see the community coming together during this crisis.
Why did you choose to attend MSP? I chose MSP because it was highly recommended by my ABA supervisor and it worked well with my work schedule. I work with many people who have completed the MA program and they all were pleased with the education they received and highly recommended it.
What do you want to do with your degree/certificate? After obtaining my degree, I’d like to pursue becoming a BCBA.
