My Greatest Supporters

The Intercultural Center has been the source of so much love and support throughout my time at SMC. From the professional staff to the friends I made while working there, the IC will always hold a special place in my heart. My professors in the Psych and WaGS departments have also encouraged my academic and personal growth, and I feel grateful to have had so many amazing role models.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

The Diversity Retreat in Fall '19 is one of my favorite memories because I had the opportunity to gather in community with folks from various spaces on campus and reflect on our goals. By the end of that weekend, I felt supported and inspired to take on the rest of the year.

My Next Chapter

I am looking forward to developing a career in the field of psychology with the hopes of attending grad school to become a counselor someday. Thankfully, I have found a post-grad job that aligns with my goals in psychology and I am eager to start this next chapter of my life.
