Psychology and Sociology


Snohomish, WA

What I'm passionate about and why

I am deeply passionate about the relationship between education and mental health, because I have been affected by both significantly. This passion is one of my main motivators to become a school counselor and help others maintain this crucial balance.

Why I chose my major

I'm studying psychology and sociology with the intent to pursue a master's degree so I can be a secondary school counselor in the future. I've always been fascinated by people, their personalities, and society, and I want to help students in the future learn who they are and how they uniquely fit into the world.

My advice for incoming or prospective students

You can learn something new every day, regardless of if you're in the classroom or not. Surround yourself with the people who encourage you to continue learning and who support you throughout the process.
