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 has been Developmental Psychology. 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.

Other involvement

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.
