"Our experiences shape us into the type of person we become; make every decision count."
 
Tell us about your internship experience.

My internship experience through the psychology department's counseling track really opened my eyes to important issues like trauma and relationship violence, and created a passion for working in both prevention/outreach and counseling/intervention.

What has been your greatest challenge?

Completing two thesis projects within two separate colleges. It was a tremendous amount of work, but the experience was well worth it. I learned a lot, not only about the two subjects I was studying, but also about myself.

What advice would you like to share with future students?

Don't be afraid to pursue something that's beyond your comfort zone. You'll learn something you otherwise couldn't, regardless of whether the outcome matches our expectation. Our experiences shape us into the type of person we become; make every decision count.
