As the Learning Center Intern, I work alongside Learning Center Staff, encouraging students to develop their professional, personal, and academic goals. As a part of the staff, I work with students through peer tutoring, the Academic Focus Program, and accommodations through the Learning Center. I also advise the Cheerleading team during both football and basketball seasons.

As a Senior of the Class of 2017 at The College of Wooster, I developed a qualitative content analysis, titled “Mental Illness and Disorders: Ethnic Minorities’ Cultural Perspectives on Professional Treatment” for my Senior Independent Study project. My study focused on ethnic and racial minority families’ reasoning for seeking and/or rejecting professional treatment for mental disorders such as depression, panic attacks, anxiety, and ADHD. I presented my research at the College’s Senior Symposium, as well as the North-East Ohio Sociology Symposium in the Spring 2017.

I absolutely love Wooster because the campus feels like another home and I am comfortable to openly share experiences with the students, faculty, and staff. It has always seemed that diverse and cross-cultural perspectives are welcome, and it is! It has created a welcoming and well-rounded environment.
