Being a part of CSS has made me realize that it is important to find yourself and know who you are before you can be successful at doing anything.

CSS is very transparent about their interest in prioritizing and forwarding the need for diversity and inclusion in the STEM field


WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE CSS EXPERIENCE SO FAR?

The life-long friends that I have made within my cohort have been the best part of my CSS experience.


HOW HAS CSS SHAPED YOUR CAREER GOALS?

Being a part of CSS has made me realize that it is important to find yourself and know who you are before you can be successful at doing anything. This realization has made me more conscious of the decisions I make, because every decision can have a massive impact on your future.

I’ve been working in Dr. Mitch Prinstein’s Peer Relations lab. This lab focuses on relationships between children and adolescents and the psychological effects that these relations have on an individual.
