What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I was 25 years old when I drove a car for the first time.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

It makes me feel angry and protective to see those who cannot defend themselves abused. It doesn’t matter if it is aimed at animals or humans. People in power need to use it to help those in need, not to make profit, humiliate and victimize.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose MSP for the unique combination of Masters in Clinical Psychology and ABA program, in hopes to learn enough to make a career out of my passion – people.

What do you plan to do with your degree?

I would like to take BCBA and LLP certification exams after graduation and find a career combining those areas of expertise.

What is your plan after graduation?

My plan after graduation is to complete my 2000-hour requirement for my BCBA/LLP exams and become a competent professional, able to spread the message about the importance of providing early intervention services for our community.
