Child/Youth and Family Studies, Neuroscience
Why you chose your major
I picked my major as I knew I wanted to help children with traumatic brain injuries, as well as have a deeper understanding of the interaction between the mind and the body.
Favorite and/or most impactful course
My favorite course so far in college has been my Developmental Psychology course. While taking this class, I was able to pick my major and minor and come to the conclusion of what I wanted my career goals to be within Psychology.
Research or internship experience
I have not had research or internships yet at the university, but I have been actively looking for projects to join when the time comes.
I am involved in Minority Pre-Health Club. I also happen to be a Teaching Assistant for a section of Introduction to Psychology.
Why you chose Nebraska
I decided to come to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln as it was a campus I knew very well. My mother is also a part of the faculty at UNL and offers me guidance and direction as I go through my undergraduate degree.
