What would people be surprised to know about you?
People may be surprised to learn that my favorite music is 90s hip hop.
Name a cause you are passionate about.
A cause I am passionate about is serving the underserved, particularly those that live in poverty and struggle with access to adequate services and opportunities. I am also very passionate about working with children and helping caregivers learn effective parenting skills.
Why did you choose MSP?
I chose to attend MSP because of the emphasis the institution puts on diversity, community, and the humanistic orientation.
What do you plan to do with your degree?
With my degree, I would like to open a private practice in Flint that helps families within the community receive high-quality mental health treatment and neuropsychological testing that they would not otherwise have access to. A community that has been through so much trauma deserves care that is nothing less than excellent.
What is your plan after graduation?
Again, in a county with over 125,000 Medicaid recipients, my goal is to open a private practice within the community that provides excellent care to families in need.
