My Greatest Supporters
My greatest sources of support are my family, friends, & professors. My family have always had unwavering faith in me and my ability to do what I want to do & be who I want to be, especially when I can't see it in myself. My friends are the most genuine & compassionate people I know (ILYSM) & my professors affirm my belonging in every space I wish to inhabit. Thank you all for everything, always.
Favorite Saint Mary's Memory
It's impossible to choose just one! I think my most favorite moments have been the small ones; staying after class to chat with professors & attending office hours, learning something new that just clicks, seeing friends while walking between classes, staying up late in the library, doing nothing with my best friends, and enjoying campus in the rain. I'm going to miss it all.
My Next Chapter
This coming August, I'll be part of THE Howard University's PhD in counseling psychology Fall 2021 cohort. I feel very privileged to begin doctoral study as a first step in pursuing a career - & a life - focused on advocacy, education, & social justice. I can only anticipate the many ways in which I'll grow over the next 5(ish) years as a researcher, future clinician & educator, woman, & human.
Clubs and ActivitiesPsi Chi
Here's one, of an immeasurable many.
"One is responsible to life: It is the small beacon in that terrifying darkness from which we come and to which we shall return. One must negotiate this passage as nobly as possible, for the sake of those who are coming after us." - James Baldwin, in "The Fire Next Time"
Some may call the full quote more confrontational than inspirational. Go read it :)
