“I am an independent, first-generation college student attending DePaul University”
Major: Psychology with a Human Development Concentration; minor in Communication Studies.
Research Interests: Prison reformation. Specifically, how we can successfully integrate black male prisoners with mental illnesses back into the community. I know that there are high numbers of mentally ill individuals sentenced to prison in the US each year and very few successful reformation/community integration programs. I want to research prison populations, rehabilitation programs, and community-integration interventions in order to develop new ways to successfully integrate black male prisoners back into the community in order to create citizens that can live healthy lives.
Goals: Once I finish my undergraduate degree, I plan to go to graduate school and obtain a Ph.D. in clinical-community psychology.
Fun Fact: I am a great boxer and martial artist
