I attend Montclair State University and am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I am a determined, hard-working and intelligent young woman aspiring to be a child psychologist. I am proud to say that I am from Newark, New Jersey. Growing up in a city where crime and violence is prevalent, I am always eager to make a change and provide positivity by helping others. I have a strong interest in helping youth because of my childhood.
Growing up, my family was not rich and we didn’t live in an area that made families or children comfortable. I wish I would have had more support. I hope to become that support to families and, most importantly, to struggling children today. My goal is to return to needy communities and do something to improve them.
So far, I have had the opportunity to work in daycares and in an elementary school throughout my high school career. I would like to expand my career opportunities with the help of America Needs You. Through ANY’s program, I hope to improve my professionalism, networking skills and knowledge of the working world.
