As a sociology major pursuing a career in medicine and public health, I am interested in applying sociology and psychology to create more effective means of understanding and interactions between medical professionals, patients, and the general public. I also have an interest in research and completed research that examined student veteran experiences on campus, and various sociological and psychological factors that influence student success rates in college.
Growing up, I have seen the impact of mental and neurological disorders across the spectrum, and the significant influence they have on daily life. I have seen the consequences of misconceptions surrounding disorders and hope to be a part in breaking the stigmas.
Outside of academics, I am trained in Indian Classical Dance, enjoy sunsets on the beach, and Red Velvet cupcakes.
