Why You Chose UofM: I chose the Counseling Psychology program at the UofM due to the program's focus on issues of social justice and diversity. Multicultural training isn't regulated to one course only but is incorporated in every single class. I was also drawn to how supportive the students are within and across cohorts.

Interests Outside of Academics: I love to travel and experience new cultures. I enjoy trying new restaurants, and spending time with friends. I'm also a huge fan of tv shows/movies and sci-fi/fantasy books. Lastly, I'm obsessed with my air fryer.
