What would people be surprised to know about you? 

People would be surprised to know that I have seen every Disney movie ever made. Disney World is my happy place, I am a kid at heart and BIG Disney fan!

Name a cause you are passionate about.

A cause I am passionate about is inner city child mental health needs and trauma exposure. As well as spreading awareness on the needs of increased knowledge and resources to make schools, home, and other places in the community more accessible and successful for children with autism.

Why did you choose MSP?

I attended MSP because of the support and resources available to help guide my passions. As well as the small class sizes and chances to build close relationships with professors and my cohort!

What do you plan to do with your degree?

With my degree/certificate I want to become both a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst and a Limited Licensed Psychologist and work with inner city children.

What is your plan after graduation?

After graduation, I plan on finding a job in the Detroit area and working for a company offering trauma therapy to inner city children as well as autism services, so I can chase both my passions!
